I’m in zone 9b (SoCal). I have a North facing, covered balcony, but I love succulents! I propagate everything and I like “saving” neglected plants.

Kalanchoe laetivirens

My succulent pots at my parents house are all just shoved together and they’ve been neglected (so they’re all blooming, of course). So I moved my #motherofthousands out today and there were at least 100 babies growing in the old wet leaves collected between pots! Of course, I have to try to save every single one. 🙄 #succulent #babies #kalanchoe

Why does this happen to my #kalanchoe ? When they flower, the whole stalk loses its leaves and I’m just left with a long bare stalk with new growth at the top. It’s happened to other kalanchoe species, too. 🙁 #bloom #motherofthousands #succulent #babies #help

It's not uncommon for many Mother of Thousands varieties to die after blooming. Oftentimes, it simply means that they've entered their final life cycle and will be replaced by all of the babies that they've produced.

@KelsiBriana 😢 I do have A LOT of babies, though.

I'm sure that you gave it a good life then!
