The problem i'm having is with two of my Kalanchoe delagoensis & tubiflora.You can look them up by those names but then they are all listed as synonyms under the same listing.I tried to add the last 2 to my list of plants and the system isn't recognizing K. tubiflora,it will only let me put K.delagoensis.I don't understand because these plants look very different. Confused

How or can i list the 2 different looking Kalanchoe's 'mother of thousands'?

Thanks for your time
Jelinda

They may look different, but botanists have found that they are the same species, so K. tubiflora now has the status of a mere synonym.

There's no perfect solution to your dilemma, but perhaps you could add the Kalanchoe delagoensis to your list and then use the "comments" section of your list to note that you have two different ones.
