  1. mother-of-thousands

    Mother-of-thousands is a specific species of flowering plant (Bryophyllum daigremontianum) native to Madagascar. It's known for its unique mode of reproduction, where it produces plantlets on the margins of its leaves that can fall off and grow into a new plant, creating an abundance of offspring, hence the name. It's also known as devil’s backbone, alligator plant, or Mexican hat plant. This plant can become an invasive species if not properly controlled, as it can rapidly spread in suitable climates.
