Oh, nice.
Do those butterflies usually fly away to different pots?
Rolling my eyes.

fixpix, these will drop in pots like all Kalanchoes. Unfortunately, since they are soooo variegated, they won't survive.
I beleive I read somewhere that someone said you may occassionally get some to root, but it is rare.
Mine have been propagated from cuttings.

That is a really cool Kalanchoe Rick. Welcome!

Is anyone growing this one?

I would say this is not real.
Probably a photoshopped pic.
None of the other blooms in the background look like this.

Hilarious! of course not! Just a fun pic of Powderpuff blooms sitting on top of Alligator Kalanchoe blooms, but not photoshopped.

Some of us old folk still like having fun now and then. Smiling

Good fun indeed. A cool picture you come up with.
I have been on some sites where people come up with some pretty interesting pictures
of plants that were photoshopped that would make you say I WANT THAT haha
I just picked up a small Powderpuff plant, no blooms yet, but I hope it will take
off this summer.
Also have a really cool Alligator plant called Parsel Tongue, super neat narrow leaves
& not near as invasive as its Mother of Millions kinfolk.

I'm happy you got the fun in it Rick. I'm a pretty serious gardener on the whole but do like having fun as much as I can in Winter especially. Even we down here never know when that last second freeze is gonna happen and wipe out the blooms. Its a miracle that the Kalanchoe or the Powderpuffs have withstood the last day or so of 30 her at night.

Keep up the good works, and that really is a special Kalanchoe you have with the pink babies. Too bad they don't root easily 'cause its a sure winner.

It was the title of your thread that encouraged me to share my fauxto! Smiling Heck! maybe it inspired it! Thumbs up I tip my hat to you.

Oh, wow RR, a "mother of thousands" (or whatever number is used in the nickname) that can't be multiplied easily.
COOL!

David... I think you should put that pic in the "Plant ID" forum to see what answers you get :)

Yes Calin,
I think the ID on that one is Parsel Tongue, if you want to GOOGLE it.
It didn't have a tag when I bought it.
I don't think I have ever seen any plantlets on the leaves.
I did have one leaf that got broke off & when I found it, there were a few plantlets that had developed.
Surprisingly to me, after this flowered, it produced alot of babies in the spent flowerstalk.
I am not sure if this is common among Kalanchoes or not??

Both are indeed very common!

Many kalanchoe won't make pups until a leaf is severed!

I've had many mother if a thousand bloom, when they get real big, it common for the main stem to buckle under the weight of all the plantlets...

I'm pretty sure all mine froze this week, or a couple weeks ago, during that first cold snap...pretty disappointing, I had multiplied my pink butterflies from one tip cutting into around a dozen plants a foot tall or more...I haven't even gone so check on them...I'm sure they are dead Glare
Please tree mail me for trades, I'm ALWAYS actively looking for more new plants, and love to trade!
