my mam used to have a succulent plant which id like to get for her again (and also for me!!) it was a houseplant so its probably tender. It had large icy green leaves bout 5-6" long and constantly sprouted babies all along the edges of the leaves. I can't remember the name of it and its driving me mad!
It could also be Kalanchoe daigremontiana, which is the most prolific at sprouting what are called adventitious plantlets on its leaves. None of the ones that cactusmcharris mentioned or this one are hard to find. They can be ordered from many succulent mail order nurseries. I would check out Bob Smoley's whose catalog is on line. I know one woman whose N. California greenhouse is infested with them. They come up in all her pots and grow faster than she can weed them. But as a houseplant they are easy and fun.
Please contact me privately, I will mail you the plant. This has light green leaves which are about 6" long. It was the plant I had in my childhood that my mom pinned to the curtain, and it grew babies in time. It drove me nuts until I could find it again. It was located in a crack of cement next to a water spout in the Huntington Gardens Conservatory. I asked for the leaf, held it and actually cried, it brought back so many memories of 60 years ago. The name will be included. Norma
Now how do I get my email address to you? Norma
