This succulent has me stumped. What kind is it?
All the little plantlets, or small plants, that grow on the edges of the leaves inspired one of this plant’s common names, mother of thousands. It is also known as devil’s backbone and alligator plant, and botanically as Bryophyllum daigremontianum. As a succulent, it grows best in full sun and well-draining soils. When the plantlets drop to the soil, they root and grow. It’s not a problem indoors, but when grown outdoors in frost-free areas, the plantlets may become a nuisance. And beware: It is toxic to people, cats and dogs.
