Kalanchoe ‘Pink Butterflies’, also sometimes referred to as Pink Mother of Thousands, is a variegated form of Kalanchoe x houghtonii. The species itself is a hybrid cross between Kalanchoe diagremontiana and Kalanchoe delagoensis.
Moreover, how do you propagate Kalanchoe?
Plant the cutting in pre-moistened peat and perlite up to the first leaf. Enclose the entire pot in plastic to form a little terrarium and conserve the moisture. Place the pot in a bright window with indirect light. Cuttings will root in 14 to 21 days and are then ready to transplant.

Butterflies that appear pink are rare in nature. Often times, they are closer to purple, or possess translucent or colorless wings, but their shimmer could produce a pink effect in the sunlight. The pink and olive-colored Elephant Hawk Moth is often mistaken for a pink butterfly, but they are not.
You can propagate kalanchoe plants through offsets or stem cuttings. When cut and planted correctly, the wounds will send out roots, creating a new plant. While the roots are busy getting established, the cutting will live off the nutrients stored in its succulent leaves.
If you rooted it in water, it’s time to give it home in a pot. Succulent potting mix works well for kalanchoe. Make sure not to overwater once your cutting is planted—soak the soil, allow to drain completely, and make sure the pot isn’t sitting in a saucer of water.
Bryophyllum and Kalanchoe show vegetative propagation. The vegetative propagation is a type of asexual reproduction. The new small buds arise from the margin of the leaves in Bryophyllum and Kalanchoe and grow to a new plant when falling on the ground.
