There are well over 120 species with origins from tropical regions of Africa and Madagascar, which means they do well in the humid heat of Houston and other subtropical climates.
Considering this, what is the difference between Mother of Thousands and mother of millions?
The difference between the two can be found in the shape of their leaves. Mother of Thousands have wider, broader leaves that grow in pairs, and plantlets appearing along the edges of the leaves. Mother of Millions have narrow leaves with plantlets appearing at the ends or the tips of the leaves.
Likewise, people ask, how many varieties of Kalanchoe are there?
Does Mother of thousands bloom?
Native to southwestern Madagascar, the mother-of-thousands is also a popular succulent for the home, and thrives in warm, dry landscapes. It does not flower frequently, or reliably, but when it does, the blossoms are stunning.
Growing mother of thousands (Kalanchoe daigremontiana) provides an attractive foliage houseplant. Though rarely blooming when kept indoors, the flowers of this plant are insignificant, with the most interesting feature being the baby plantlets continually appearing on the tips of the large leaves.
If you give them too much water, they have a tendency to rot, making them unusable. Mother of Thousands doesn’t like a lot of humidity – this goes for the plantlets as well.
It’s native to the tropical and subtropical regions of Madagascar. The slow-growing mother of thousands can only be grown outdoors in hotter regions, such as Florida and Hawaii; it rarely flowers indoors. If you plant it outdoors, only do it after the weather gets warmer in the summer months.
Mother of Thousands needs plenty of bright light and can be taken outdoors on warm spring and summer days. However, make sure you introduce your plant to the outdoors gradually, to avoid sunburn on its leaves.
