Mother of Thousands
Crassulaceae (sedum family)
Bryophyllum daigremontianum also known as Alligator plant is an upright succulent perennial, with opposite, fleshy oblong-lanceolate, grey-green leaves, often spotted with brown-red and with a row of plantlets on each edge. The plantlets form roots while on the plant. The leaves reach up to 8 inches long and up to 1.2 inches wide. The flowers are tubular, greyish pink in color, up to 1 inch long.
Locate the Alligator Plant in bright, but indirect light for several hours per day. When growing Kalanchoe outdoors, avoid direct afternoon sun.Too much direct sunlight may cause leaves to become sunburned
This plant does need good drainage and is best potted in a soil mix containing ECA or sand for sharper drainage.
Suitable for Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping
As a general rule of thumb, all the ones with colourful leaves like Echeverias, Sedeveria and Graptopetalum like bright sunlight and semi shade in extreme summers. They cannot be kept indoors or in full shade. All succulents love morning sun.
You can fertilise your succulent once a month.
Watering tips : Make sure NOT to water on the plant itself. Water directly in the soil. You can use a cup or a glass to make sure the water does not spray on leaves. When watering, make sure water comes out of the drainage hole.
