is it Kalanchoe? or something else?

This tall gangly plant produces baby plants on the tips of the long spotted leaves - some type of Kalanchoe maybe, but which one? Anyone want some baby plants - it produces lots.

Thanks for helping me to identify this plant. Mine is about 4 feet tall now and blooming. It has been fun to watch this mystery plant develop from a 2-inch piece.

Kalanchoe~Chandelier Plant
by: Sue

I live in Florida and didn't know what these unusual plants were. They pop up in my flower boxes and so I collected them and put them in a big pot.

They now have grown about 3-4 ft. high and have produced the most beautiful and unusual deep coral pink BELL shaped flower clusters. I love them!

Apparently they bloom late December because I have neighbors that also have some that are blooming now. They are called (I found out on this site) either Chandelier Plant or Mexican Hat Plant and are native to Madagascar.

Grow rampant so pull up any you don't want when small and give away. I also read all parts of this plant is poisonous so protect your curious pets from them.

Kelanchoe delagoensis, 4 shur!

You came to the right place. Just google it and search under images.

Mine grow about 3 feet or a meter tall, then the tubular leaves give way to a "crown"of buds, then to beautiful pink and flowers resembling a Tiffany glass "chandelier". Then the plant dies down, and when the plant flops down the tiny plantlets at the tips of the leaves will put down roots and start a lot of otber plants. I grow them in the greenhouse here in Canada. A frost will wreak havoc on all the plant's juicy cells.
By tbe way, K.delagoensis, like most Kalanchoes are "poisonous"🤤😨🤢💀☠👻😇/👹
