Not sure I am in the right place but will give this a try. A year or two ago someone gave me this plant. It was just tiny and I was not overly fond of it so just stuck it on the patio and it got watered now and them. Mostly totally neglected. It kept getting taller and taller and is now around 7 ft tall. I wired it to a plant stand and once again ignored it. This morning I was totally shocked to find this gorgeous bloom on it!!! D'Oh! I am now paying attention to this plant and would love to know what it is. Very few leaves are on it but I did photograph what was there. Big Grin

What a fun surprise! It reminds me of one of the Mother of Thousands. Maybe Kalanchoe daigremontiana or one similar to it.

Looks like this one to me:

One of my Greenhouse "weeds". I keep telling potential victims (Oops! Make that owners) that if you give them a chance (and a lot of head space) they have beautiful flowers. Smiling

Agree, I gave up on Plumeria after 4 yrs of no blooms to give more space to Kals, which bloom readily & profusely for me.

I have found that if the Kals get too tall, I can cut the stem, stick it back in the pot & it won't interrupt the blooming, assuming the light is strong enough that it was going to bloom anyway. I don't have all of them, but have done this with about 5-6 diff ones so far & it's working well.
