I bought a little alligator plant (that's what the guy said)at the flea market about a year ago. It has now grown into about 14 inches tall. My problem is it's dropping babies like crazy. I was looking at it today, there are about a hundred babies about to be dropped. I hate to destroy them, would anyone like these for a SASE padded envelope?

It's Kalanchoe daigremontiana, the "Mother of Thousands"--but a well grown plant is more like "Mother of Millions".

Hi Jan,

Any chance you've got a grade school or elementary school near you to whom you could donate these? (I'm not a Mom, but always thought if I were) small kids would just love to see these plants & how they grow. HTH = Hope this helps.

Does anyone have a pic they can upload of this plant...I searched but with no luck...I am beginning to wonder if I am the proud owner of my own baby making machine...

Pls. look at Desert-tropicals.com, look under succulents for Brophyphyllum Digremontiana or Kalanchoe Digremontiana. Not the very best pic, but if you can imagine little tiny plantlets at each 'tooth' of the serrated leaf edges, that would be them. HTH
