Bryophyllum daigremontianum, commonly called devil’s backbone, mother of thousands, alligator plant, or Mexican hat plant is a succulent plant native to Madagascar. Mother of Thousands is easy to grow in average room conditions.
Mother of Thousands is a succulent that grows from a single stem, covered top to bottom with big, blue-green leaves. Its narrow, pointed leaves can grow to 6 in (15 cm) long and about half as wide. The real attraction are the tiny plantlets that grow along the edges of the leaves, which easily fall off and will root where they drop. All parts of Kalanchoe daigremontiana are poisonous. Keep it out of the reach of children or pets - it may be fatal if ingested.
