Here is a shot of its #thickleaves. Not sure what this is, friend said it was a type of #cactus / #succulent? Beautiful #pinkflowers, grows #tall. I don't have it anymore but want to get another one! Help me identify this plant #PlantID
K. delagoensis has tubelike leaves with little plantlets at the end of them. The leaves of K. daigremontiana are more triangular and the plantlets grow all around them. But they're mixed up quite often, so a research about them can be very confusing, especially as both of them have like three different names 🙈😂 K. delagoensis is also known as K. tubiflora and Bryophyllum delagoense. I hope this explanation is halfway understandable? 😅
@natii yeah I was seeing them used rather interchangeably... 😅 These leaves were sorta thick and boat like. I don't think they ever grew anything on them, but when I was at my parents with these they were in optimal conditions. They did grow tall though lol
I think I'm going to go with your original assessment. The other options at least in this encyclopedia don't seem to be the same; the pictures of K. delegoensis is the closest even though no one else has posted it flowering so I can't be sure.
It must have been a happy plant since it got such pretty flowers 😊 Yes, the encyclopedia is definitely not complete. But if you say it never grow plantlets, then I think it's none of the mentioned ones. The section bryophyllum includes some more species, but unfortunately I barely know something about them 😕
@KelsiBriana Yep , give me a moment.. I don't have the exact plant anymore so my pictures are a little limited. We kept it inside because it was too hot outside and it kept wilting and then it would get too cold in winter all of a sudden, seemed like it loved making flowers inside though.
#leaves 2 @KelsiBriana
@KelsiBriana Nice! Thank you so much! I'll have to figure out how to get another bit of this. It was nice to take care of 😊
I love those and I didn’t know they have those great blooms!! Not real familiar with succulents so I don’t know if there called blooms but what a nice plant👍🏻🤗🎄⛄️
@terrimclaughlin Yep, they bloom in clusters at the top of the plant. I love the purple green color of the steam with the pink 💙 This one seem to thrive on neglect so it was a great plant!
