This is such an easy plant to fall in love with. Fang is a perfect name. I wanted to show how easily I was able to root a leaf that fell off a few months back. A root began out of the stem, not long but thick. I planted it before knowing of this great site. I have about 30 leaves in the process of rooting now, so will show any progress. So glad many of you seem to like this as much as I do.

Wasn't sure I had to pull it inside for winter, zone 6b, but didn't want to chance losing it. I did leave the mother plant outside to find out how well it does. will try to keep it dry after mid-November. I will post any new root growth in a month or so, whatever Fang wants. lol, Thanks to everyone for the welcome. Crossing Fingers!

HI & welcome!

I love this plant too. I can't think of another plant I've touched that is more fuzzy than Fang.

Good decision to bring inside. The lowest temp here last winter was about 24 for a few hours and that was enough to ruin all Kalanchoe foliage of the various Kal individuals that I had left in the ground. A normal winter here probably would have killed the roots too. You probably don't want to deal with cold-damaged plants, if they were to survive at all.

Thanks for the welcome and the info, so glad you knew that. I may try and find a winter home for Momma Fang in the house. Sighing! I'm sure to hear about this project. *Blush* Hilarious!

Glad to have another friendly person aboard the site! Are you one of those who is trying to not cross the line of having plants inside at all, or one who already has a regular crew of house plants and is not sure where another would fit? If you're in the latter camp, know there are house plant and cacti/succulent forums here also. They can be found here:

Hi
I bought my Kalanchoe Beharensis Fang about a year ago.She was quite small and did not know what she was. She was left outside during the summer and grew to about 10" tall. I brought her inside for the winter and it grew like a Redwood. She is now 25" or 650 mm tall and is quite velvety or fuzzy. I have grown fond of this plant I just recently researched to find out exactly what kind of plant she is. Based on my findings I have named her "Madagascar". I recently transplanted her into a larger pot and accidentally knocked off a leaf. I did not know I could grow the leaf but will be sure to transplant any fallen leafs in the future.

Welcome! @Bucky62! Your plant did grow a lot, but it needs much more light. The growth should be full like the bottom of it is. The part that is skinny is etiolated, due to not enough light. You can leave it, but if I had it, I'd chop off the part where it gets skinny, and cut it into several pieces to root and start new plants in plenty of light.
