Good morning from the Napa Valley. This is anna-marie. I am here to show you and I just saw this morning up in the sky. I bet they’re having fun today. And this is early early this morning about seven oclock. So that’s the time when these balloons go up in the sky, and then they come down and then go all the way around guys if you come to. Napa Valley per person. This right is about $200 so I don’t know $200 to risk your life. I’m scared I don’t do this, but you guys might be a little bit more bolder than I am, but this is awesome to look at and the morning sky when I first wake up in the morning, go on, all these people waving, waving at me. Hey, guys, welcome to my channel. I’m here to talk about this kalanchoe e! Maternity, it is also called mother of a thousand, The reason why it’s called. That is because if you see these little guys, so here are the babies. There’s like a thousand of them, So the first thing that I did when I first got this. I ordered this plant through online and when I got it. All of these little stems right here we’re empty or they didn’t have the babies, but yet, like in the package. All the babies were everywhere, so it was packed that way or it just. They just started falling off during shipment. So I figured I didn’t even know where these little guys came from Because all of these stems and all the leaves were were just stripped off of the babies that they had so what I did was. I put them in a in a pot with soil and everything, and I figured something might happen, and I didn’t know what it was, so I put them in these little plastic things and look at them. Now they are just progressive. This is how they came in. These are now the babies that fell off of this plant. That was just all around the the table that I had it on, however, when I came back from vacation. It seems like they were bending down. I think from being so top-heavy. So I put that the chopsticks or my husband. Put the chopsticks there to just prop them up but, however. I think that it has run. Its course how tall they’re gonna be from this pot that it’s in. It looks like it’s overgrown from this pot. So that’s why they were bending, but then all of these little stems are also bending, and I don’t really know what’s going on, so I did some research, and I found this article where they were talking a lot about the mother of a thousands and it seems like they could. Bend like this so now. I’m gonna just remove this chopstick, because I’m just gonna let nature take its course, but I will probably cut the top off because this is getting so progressive right here. I don’t know, I must be doing something right because they’re just growing so much and we’ll take you back to the day that I received this from in the mail, okay. I just got this in the mail. I’m so excited! This is my 40 cuttings that I ordered on eBay and it came in two boxes. This is a second box inside, and I promise you I did not peek before I did. This made this video, so you and I are going to open it together. Just see all the wonderful succulents. Okay, So it’s so unusual to me. It’s unusual to me. I haven’t seen in anything like this before. That’s so pretty look at that. Look at the leaf! Oh, and the rest is. Oh, my goodness! I don’t know what these little things are, but I’m gonna plant it because it has. It seems to have roots on the bottom so now. This is progressive right here. This is a growth just from when I received it. I think it’s been three months and because they’re so cramped in this little space. I’m going to, oh, look at this, Honey. That’s having babies already. That one that one’s having a baby already. I’ll take a picture of it. Um, okay, so when I put this mother plant right by my other babies. This is what happened. It gave off a baby and it fell right into this little pot next to it. And now it’s growing a lot higher than these guys so now. I’m realizing how cramped they are in this little space, so I’m going to have to replant. Repot them individually and I don’t know, I probably will sell them next week and my garage sale or something. However, this plant right here. I read is so progressive that it’s going to. I got this article from some expert. Her name is Angela Carson and it’s under Dave’s Garden Comm. And she’s saying I’m just gonna read it off to you. I’ve never seen me Kalanchoe A diagram mom Tiana flower. Though, as I research it for the article, I learned that they occasionally send up an umbrella like stalk with clusters of downward-facing, pink or purple bell-shaped flower, which is cool. These flowers, however, do not reproduce viable seeds as with many succulents, the bloom appears to be the girl that lasts grass before the plant dies often in the autumn there. There are several pictures of the bloom submitted by Gate’s Garden members available to the plant files entry, which is available by clicking here. If you guys want to know more about this, just go to. Dave’s garden com. It has a chock full of information there because they’ve been in the business for so long when I looked up the plant and the plant files, I was surprised to see many negative ratings associated with this prolific tendency to spread, apparently. I am fortunate that I live in climate cold enough in the winter to require me to keep my calico in a pot indoors. So guys, the this kind of plants. If you don’t want it to get progressively overtaking your garden, you should keep it in a pot, especially when you live in the like a warmer climate, this is probably going to thrive, but look how pretty they are, look. I just love the leaves. I just love this variegated color right here, And then it goes on. Apparently, I have a limited space so my intense to be relegated to a fairly small pot that doesn’t give it much encouragement to grow rapidly. It resides in a clay pot in succulent potting soil with fairly sharp drainage, sharp drainage meaning. When your water, it goes from straight down the the hole. I’ve noticed new sprouts popping up in other pots. Which is this guy right here? It threads without frequent frequent watering, which makes it an easy house plan for a busy household like ours, even with my benign neglect. I noticed new Sprouse popping up in other pots where they’ve dropped from the mother plant. I’ve had difficulty removing them from my beloved Christmas cactus and have since real relocated the little offender to a location where I moved from my favorite plants. Upon further research, I’ve learned that not only that if not only colonizes the pots of other plants but also negatively affects their growth and can leave a residue in the soil that reduces the rate of growth of other plants. Oh, my word, well, so what we need to do is like, really find a spot for these guys because they grow up to two to three feet or maybe even more if it’s in the right situation so. I think I have a perfect spot for, hmmm. Also another important information. Is that way planted outdoors in a more temperate climate? However, the plant ceases to be cute and becomes a terribly invasive bug, given its ideal warm, somewhat dry growing conditions, which is good here in Napa Valley. The plant can shoot up to 3 feet, which is approximately 1 meter tall in drops plantlets at a little alarming rate. Each new plant then forms a score so plantlets across each of its leaves, compounding the problem, if not erratically eradicated quickly, it has been listed as a noxious invasive in many Arab areas worldwide, including Texas, Florida, in parts of California in the United States and Puerto Rico, Australia, Venezuela, South Africa and parts of the Caribbean among others. So if you’re in a warmer climate, this guy is apparently the best suited for that kind of climate, even in my climate emitted houseplant environment. I’ve discovered another cost for a concern. Okay, this is important. Guys, listen. I had decided to move my kalanchoe to the kitchen as it seemed to be yellowing and shriveling a little in cool conditions of our sunny and close porch during the winter months. I said it on the north-facing kitchen window where I did. Indeed, begin to return to his former rich green color. My husband noticed, however, that the plant list were dropping from the leaves and landing in their dog’s bed below the ass If it was dangerous if she would happen to eat one when I looked it up. Uh-oh, I was alarmed to see that all parts of the town. Koli is in fact, highly toxic. So guys be careful around your kids and your animals. If they’re around this point, if they like to eat stuff from the ground like my dogs, fortunately, do not if it’s not coming from my hands if they would not eat it. So it contains a cardiac the life aside day. Grab one key item. I don’t know if I said that, right, but which can be fatal for small children and pets, so exercise chew and caution, So you just if you decide decide to grow this plant in the wild, it presents a very real danger to grazing livestock and Wildlife. Once I knew this toxic properties. I decided it was safer to keep behind closed doors on the chilly enclosed porch where my pets wouldn’t be able to access it. I have to choose between losing a plant or losing a pet. The plant would have to go. And I agree so that is your get to know this beautiful kalanchoe he sometimes beautiful can be dangerous that goes for humans as well, but this is beautiful and that’s it guys.
