This succulent gets its name–mother of a thousand–from its unusual method of propagation. Instead of dropping seeds, it grows “thousands” of baby plantlets in an attractive border along the edge of its leaves. Each plantlet is capable of developing into its own succulent so you’ll want to share some with friends. Indoors the mother of a thousand rarely flowers. It is also known as Mexican hat plant or alligator plant.
May be displayed outdoors in warmer weather. Unusual foliage makes this plant suitable as a centerpiece for an indoor display. Perfect for all kinds of containers.
