Photo - Mother of Thousands (Kalanchoe daigremontiana)

This short lived (3 years) succulent is a great container plant.
Needing no care and almost no water, this succulent
forms hundreds of smaller plantlets on the tips of its leaves.
These plantlets fall off to form new plants.
Mother of Thousands produce spectacular flowers at the end
of their lifespan just before dying.

  1. Could I use your photo of "mother of thousands" for an educational handout at a science fair?
