This is a plant/weed that was grown at work and seems to propagate very quickly? I'm wondering what it is, any guesses?

CAI9300,

Nope, nothing I could do to get it
to show up.!!!!

Is this to your home computer or to a
site that you can link to??????

If it's your home computer, you have to link it
somewhere's thru the URL and click on image button.

Go to www.PHOTOBUCKET.com
it's really user friendly and FREE to
upload some pictures to,
so we can view it here...

I have no idea what that is, but I have to say that if it is a weed, it is a rather cool looking one!

Welcome to the forum!

Not an outdoor weed, it's a House plant...

Called, Mother of Thousands...

Each one of those little guys hanging off the leaves, can and will drop down and start
a whole new one of those momma plants....

Hence the name MOTHER OF THOUSANDS!!!!

Let's see what catagory is it in...
succulent..
I'd say about the same care as a Jade?????

Let me go see if I can find some more info...

We have one of those. It came along with a cactus we purchased and was tiny for a long time. This summer I put it out on my porch with my jades and kalanchoe and it is huge now.

Kalanchoe daigremontiana (devil"s backbone, mother-of-thousands)is so named because of its unusual production of tiny baby plants all along the edges of its leaves. These baby plants drop to the soil below and easily take root on the surface of the soil.

It does best in a sunny south-facing window, although it will survive in bright indirect light. It is a succulent and prefers to stay on the dry side. Allow the top half of the soil to dry out before watering thoroughly. In winter, keep it even drier and try to keep temps in the 50 to 60 degree range. It does fine in low humidity. Fertilize very sparingly at half strength and only when it is growing vigorously

This plant will grow quite tall and gangly if it is not pinched or pruned back periodically. It tends to drop off its older leaves, as it grows taller. In time it will bend over as the stems become too tall to support themselves. Pruning will help promote branching. It sometimes flowers if it gets lots of bright light, is kept potbound, and has long days and short nights. It is a nearly pest-free plant.
