Mother Of Millions
Devils Backbone, Chandelier Plant
Bryophyllum delagoense has many common names including mother of millions, devils backbone and chandelier plant. Historically this species was included within the genus Kalanchoe, and it has over 7 synonyms due to the extensive reclassification of plants in this genus and the genus Kalanchoe over time. This is a very common houseplant. Flowers are pretty, bell-shaped and coloured pink to orange, these are borne on long stems above the leaves. They are grown more for their attractive foliage and interesting reproduction over the flowers. This species produces clonal plantlets from the edges of its leaves, these develop on the mother plant for some time, growing roots and eventually dropping off to form new individuals. The common name mother of thousands comes from this vegetative reproduction method, these species are very easy to propagate and with little effort, you can produce many, many plants from one specimen.
