Kalanchoe pinnata

Code: 80169

Price: $9.95

Quantity in Basket: None

Family: Crassulaceae

This succulent plant is often sold to Hawaiian tourists as a souvenir oddity because of its ability to grow small plantlets on its leaf margins, even if just pinned to a curtain in the air. Clustered greenish white to reddish flowers dangle from the flower stalk, as on a chandelier. Fast growing, drought tolerant 2 to 3 feet high. Tolerates almost any conditions, sun or shade, but likes moisture with good drainage. Easy popular house plant. Can also be grown outdoors in mild climates (no frost), but can be invasive in the tropics. Has many tribal and herbal medicinal uses. Naturalized in the Hawaiian Islands, but probably native to Madagascar.
