Please help to support Ukraine against the bullying tactics of a huge neighboring country.

Baby had piece in mouth

Graptopetalum

Graptopetalum

Graptopetalum & Pachyphytum succulent plants.

Luckily, these types of plants are not as toxic as plants in other species, but if the baby has actually swallowed the pieces, I wouldn't waste any time taking the child and parts of the plant to the emergency room.

It is probably worth having some Syrup of Ipecac handy if this is a common problem; learn about how to use this emetic which will make the victim vomit.

Keep all succulents out of reach, including any fallen pieces - they are just too appealing to a certain age group.

Best of luck,
