    I have a question. I have a Kalanchoe gastonis-bonnieri that also develops plantlets. Though it has similar notches along the leaf margin, it only appears to develop the plantlets at the tips. So, are these also sexually sterile, since (perhaps) the same gene is involved in the asexual reproduction?

    Wikipedia directs from this name to Bryophyllum daigremontianum. Does your posting it as Kalanchoe mean there is not agreement on that?

    Not a great photo, but a few flowers. Previously, I had a stem come up with a veritable crown of flowers. It was gorgeous! I call it “Mother of Millions” as it really can produce millions invasively and it rolls off the tongue easier 🙂

    My plant has been in a pot outside for years. Grows very little considering and I found burn on it this summer. Assume husband got it wet in the hottest part of the season.

    I have three different varieties of this plant — one with “babies” just at the ends of long slender leaves, one with roundish leaves with babies all around, and one with sword-shaped leaves and a pointed tip, also with babies all around.
    I had many plants but at one point they all got something like powdery mildew so I got rid of all but a few hardy babies. Now I have all three varieties growing again in my greenhouse. Soon I’ll try them again as houseplants. What might cause that powdery mildew? Anyone know? I don’t want that to happen again.

    Surprised you say it is poisonous because they sell it here in Spain as a medicinal herb!
