Germination of

Kalanchoe delagoensis

Mother Of Millions - Chandelier Plant, Kalanchoe diagremontiana, Alligator Plant

Kalanchoe delagoensis

Kalanchoe delagoensis and Bryophyllum daigremontianum are both members of the Kalanchoe genus and are commonly known as mother of thousands. The seeds of these plants are small and should be sown on the surface of a well-draining soil mix. The soil should be kept consistently moist but not waterlogged, and the seeds should be exposed to bright, indirect light. Germination can be slow and erratic, with some seeds taking several weeks or even months to germinate.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
