The Mother of Thousands, scientifically known as Kalanchoe daigremontiana, is a fascinating succulent native to Madagascar. This unique plant is known for its ability to produce numerous baby plants along the edges of its leaves, which later drop off and grow into new plants, hence its name. Its leaves are long, arching, and can vary in colour from green to a bluish or purplish hue. This resilient succulent is a must-have for anyone who loves easy-to-care-for, dramatic-looking plants.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

Due to its prolific nature, this plant can quickly take over a space if not managed. Be mindful of where the baby plants drop, as they easily root wherever they land.

Care Guide

How to take care of Mother Of Thousands

They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.

They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. This can take up to 4 weeks in an average home environment but it will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions. For them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. wrinkly or soft leaves). Water a little more often in the warmer months.

Their humidity requirement is low, so do not mist them or put them in an enclosed terrarium.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.

Introducing the Mother of Thousands, also known as Kalanchoe daigremontiana, a remarkable houseplant that encapsulates the essence of nurture, abundance, and the circle of life.

This intriguing succulent is aptly named for its ability to produce countless baby plants on the edges of its leaves. The plantlets are a testament to nature's desire for growth and propagation, offering a compelling parallel to the human instinct to nurture and protect.

For a lush and thriving Mother of Thousands, position your plant in a well-lit area with moderate to bright, indirect light. Much like how we find vitality in nurturing relationships, this plant thrives when provided with the right conditions.

Watering should be moderate, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. This lesson in restraint teaches us the importance of not overwhelming those we care for, yet still offering enough to maintain a flourishing relationship.

With each new generation of plantlets, the Mother of Thousands perpetuates a cycle of life and renewal. This constant rebirth serves as a poignant reminder of the enduring power of family, love, and care.

Welcome the Mother of Thousands into your home. It’s not just a plant; it's a vivid expression of the continuity of life, teaching us that with care and love, we can foster countless new beginnings.
