Product Description

Mother-of-thousands (Kalanchoe daigremontiana) is native to southwest Madagascar. It is also called Devil's Backbone, Alligator Plant,or Mexican Hat Plant. This odd succulent is a member of the Crassulaceae family of plants. Mother-of-thousands blooms in late winter. The inflorescence is a at the top of the plant. Seen from above, which is usual since the plant only grows two to three feet, the inflorescence is not very interesting. But if you look up at the pinkish-orange flowers hang from the panicle; the delicate beauty can be appreciated.

Mother-of-thousands have mottled serrate leaves, borne in pairs along the stem. The common name refers to the plant's vivipary; it produces adventitious plantlets in the notches along the leaf edges. When each plantlet can survive on its own, it will drop from the parent.

Care of the Mother-of-Thousands is easy. Provide very bright light or full sun and water when the soil is dry.

I recently purchased 2 Mother-Of-A-Thousand plants from your supply & shipped from Hirt's Gardens.I am very pleased with my product & the care taken to provide me with quality plants. Upon arrival, all the plant's stems, leaves & shoots from the leaves were all intact & very hearty. I have received many plants through shipping & have rarely had the pleasure of my plants arriving so well traveled, packaged & healthy.
Thank you for all your care & handling of my new plants.

The item says that you get a "plant" in a 3" pot. You do NOT get the plant. You only get around 4 babies that the plant produces. They came in a plastic bag. I wanted a whole plant in a pot as it was listed. I paid $10 for the plant and $5 + for shipping. The item listed by this seller is very misleading and they shouldn't be allowed to advertise on Amazon. This is the first time that I have ordered something from Amazon and not gotten what was listed.

I got mine in a Wendy' take out container wrapped in a wet paper towel and it was just 4 buds the rest had rotted. I ordered 2 plants thinking they would be delivered in a 3 " pot. Buyer beware. I would not recommend anyone ordering from this place

Great little plants, arrived in great condition. I even got an e-mail from the grower wanting to make sure I got them and that they came in good condition. These 5 came with good planting & care instructions which was very helpful. I put them in two pots mostly due to two of the 5 were tall and need a bigger pot put versus the three little cuttings which went into a small bonsai pot. Within 1 week of receiving them, they all started sprouting new growth! I have them in sunny windows & they are getting big. New cuttings very soon to give out as gift to my friends. Very excited to have these plants, very pretty & vigorous.

I bought this plant on September 21st and I got it on September 26th, which is pretty good because it was set to arrive by the 30. The plant was shipped in a Coke box and crammed into my mailbox causing the leaves to be torn and a few of them actually fell off the plant. I figured that when whoever shipped it in the first place would at least care enough to mark the box as fragile or at least put it in a stronger box. I'm going to try my best to bring it back to good health, but I'm not sure if it will work out.

it has about 8 steams sprouting from the bottom of the pot,I think the seeds that do fall off will grow to the same size I have yet to try this, (busy with odds and ends) I believe I'm in the wrong climate zone, it says 65-75 F, but when I got it it was staying humid and around 90s though it didn't hurt it it seems. they are now about a foot tall, I have to wait until winter before it blooms.
