Kool Kalanchoe

I'm always on the look out for unusual and interesting plants so when I ran past a "charity plants" stall outside someone's house the other day I was delighted to spot this little beauty.

I had to take the car round later to collect it as I couldn't have run carrying it!

What I love about it is the way it reproduces. All along the leaf margins are baby plantlets which is why I took this photo from above to show them off. When they are ready they simply drop down onto the ground and start rooting. It also has lovely markings underneath the leaves.

There's a really good photo of a mature specimen here
