Wow! I didn't know a Mother of Thousands had such beautiful flowers. I was just amazed by its tiny little babies!

@kaigia it can get quite tall and be a nice focal... blooms last a long time, too. So fun to have in a butterfly garden.

My aunt-in-law from Vietnam insists that this plant is edible - and used mostly in salads and/or snacked on by elder men in Vietnam. But I googled “Mother of Thousands” and it’s supposedly poisonous. Thoughts?

Depends on the type there are a few that are medicinal and edible. But the rest are poisonous. Heres a link with some helpful info on the actual ones. Theres more info out there on these few you can look up. http://cancerending.blogspot.com/2014/07/kalanchoe-bad-weed-that-cures-cancer.html?m=1
