Aloe vera may be edible but it's most effective for topical use. The aloe which is usually consumed for medicinal benefit is now called Aloe officinalis. Don't eat any Kalanchoes. Or for that matter most succulents. Special exceptions for cactus fruit. Smiling

My understanding is that most Kalanchoe are poisonous to animals. Humans with cardio issues can also suffer a reaction to Kalanchoe.

I agree with the above, keep succulents (and most plants for that matter) off the menu unless you are certain.
Salvia and anything unusual
