Mother of Millions
Mother of Millions
Scientific Name: Kalanchoe delagoensis
Very similar to the Mother of Thousands succulent (see here) the mother of millions succulent is one of the easiest to propagate! This is because it grows baby plants on its leaves! It has become a fan favorite in my home, and is often referred to as the ‘other babies plant’. My boyfriend likes to pluck off all the babies and scatter them all over the place, they are now infiltrating all of my green house cabinets! Keep reading for a quick overview of the mother of millions succulent and how to care for it!
This succulent grows upward and can get very tall! You can differentiate it from the mother of thousands mainly by its appearance, it is typically purple and striped. Similar to most succulents this succulent cannot tolerate frost or cold weather so make sure to bring it indoors during the winter months! I prefer to keep mine indoors year round as it does very well inside! It is also known to be invasive in certain areas due to its reproduction strategy and growth rate (these guys grow fast!) so make sure to check before planting outdoors, for example in Australia it is classified as an invasive weed.
Please take note, this plant is toxic and will cause stomach pains if ingested, because of this keep it out of reach of pets or children, and take special care because the little babies do tend to fall off easily!
