Kalenchoe in the cracks!



I have always found many spawn of these two Kalenchoes (large leaf is Kalanchoe daigremontianum, and thin long leaf is Kalanchoe tubiflora) growing in my tires outside, but have never had any grow in the cracks between my tires...until now! I am kinda excited about it...it makes it look more filled in and softer around the black tire edges. Anyway, I always call these two mothers in crime, Mother of Thousands, Mother of Millions, and Mother of Trillions! They propogate like crazy women!!! LOL! :)

So pretty! I'm becoming quite the fan of those Kalanchoes now Julie! I love your nickname, it's so true... I find myself on the balcony picking up all of the little fallen "children" on the ground around my roadside found Kalanchoe and I either toss them back in the pot or into another planter where I want them to take over and fill out! By the way, would you like to swap Kalanchoes and succulent cuttings?

What a nice surprise, they are adorable!

Beautiful, Julie... Wish I knew something about succulents---but I'm a newby when it comes to them... We have our Semps (Hens and Chicks) and I have my Autumn Joy Sedum... That's about it for us!!!!

I'm learning from you!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

How fun! I think it's great the way they just "pop" up in the oddest places! I read somewhere once where they referred to them as invasive weeds and warned people to stay away from them...they're no fun!!!

I love Kalanchoe's too. Hey I have an idea. Why don't you make some cuts around your tires so that more of them can grow! You can plant some of the little babies in the cracks and watch them take off. I love when Kalanchoe leaves fall on the ground and the next thing you know they have babies along the edges. So cool!

Love the tall Kalanchoe on the right. Very pretty and love the little flowers on the ends. Have a great day!! The weather here in So Cal is still way below the normal temps. Really loving it.

Yep...Australia is one country that views Mothers of Millions as invasive and toxic weeds. It kills cattle. They also view Prickly Pear as a noxious weed and that upsets me 'cos I LOVE prickly pear....we keep two in a pot. Wonderful pics, Julie.....you are a Cactus and Succulent Queen!

So, so pretty! I transplanted a jade plant today in a larger pot, as I knew it would grow out of the small one I began my aunts cuttings in...and it has!

How wonderful! Maybe I should plant some near my zucchini plants to inspire them to reproduce. I love that poem on your sidebar, BTW. It would be a good one to tape to the bathroom mirror or stick on the refrigerator door.

Julie your pictures are awesome. Now I have to post some cactus pics that I took on the Monterey coast.
