I have a few MOT plants(just look into another pot...lol especially within wind distance)This baby near top of plant,I've not removed them yet,but thinking of going in business...lol its got one lone bloom.I've not it had it do that when removeing the babies and they grow in another spot,pot,what-have-you(even had one sprout in a canna leaf and was 4 inches when found it)
I've added another variety MOT (like one wasn't enough..) I like it.I'm already finding its babies as well.Its babies are darker than my other.

I've got photo.dial up is slow but getting Hughes net Tuesday.I'm trying to get my photos caught up.next week will get easier.I'm just surprised about the baby.Margret...don't you grow one?

Wow. Their blooms are beautiful!! I no longer have any. My father-in-law gave me one (only one) about 10 years ago. As of ~8 years ago they were everywhere, in everything, taking over pots of other plants I wanted, mom-plant was getting ugly-leggy, it was horrible. I got rid of them all. This took me months, but eventually I eradicated them. THEN I saw a pic of the bloom, learned more about how to care for such plants, and am currently considering getting a Kalanchoe gastonis-bonnieri. It's very similar but a little less agressive with its children. I still hesitate. I have so many plants now that I've told myself I have to compost or give away one for any new one I bring in. And I just got 2 cuttings of portulacaria afra variegated without getting rid of anything. Ah, what I could do if I had a conservatory. Maybe the livingroom?
Again, njoynit , don't wait until you're old to do what ever the hell you want! Start now!


May God bless the WHOLE world!

it makes millions of babies on its leaves.

The large leafed one on shelf...was a baby removed off Juners leaf in Dec& I wintered it in butter tub and planted in what its in now in March.The one beside the shelf is the top off another from 2 yrs ago,but did not cut top this year....on either plant.after it bloomed...it started forming baby plants differently from the leaf tips& I can remove them from mom.there are 3 small 4 inch pots on top shelf...with growing babies& 1 with a baby red kalonchoe(which has 3 babies fallen& growing)That big leafed one....its different from yours Diane.its got molting on leaves.I had no idea the baby would bloom(well gee...the PLANT had to grow up.juner says its a whore cause shes young...still at home with a baby..haveing a baby..lol)

The prickly pear is a donkey ear prickly pear.I caught the dog playing with a few months back.I've just not planted it somewhere yet.middle shelf is a rooting area.if its broke& will root.its there(plus dropped hoya leaves,arrowroot vine pieces,pothos pieces)


Um it blooms every year decemberish,but was later this year.I think the 1st yr I had did not bloom but thought was shade,But it can grow in full sun.I think they bloomed Febr.this year

Wrennie...I can pluck ya some kids...............I won't even miss them!
