This plant is extraordinary. It roots easily from cuttings, is architecturally interesting, grows rapidly and makes for a great hedge alternative.

A chance find at a local nursery, this form of Kalanchoe beharensis has no fuzz on the leaves what-so-ever! I didn't notice it at first as it was in a group of normal fuzzy K. beharensis, but after a closer look I noticed this was an oddball. It generally has the same structure and propagation ability of a regular K. beharensis, but the leaves feel more like a rubber spatula with a subtle, powdery bloom that can easily be rubbed off.
