Pattharchatt Plant is a popular houseplant and has become naturalized in tropical and subtropical areas.

Description

It is a succulent plant that is native to Madagascar. It is distinctive for the profusion of miniature plantlets that form on the margins of its leaves, a trait it has in common with the other members of the genus Bryophyllum.
It requires minimal care and can tolerate dry conditions and high temperatures. Bryophyllum daigremnontainum grows from a single stem that is covered from top to bottom with large, blue-green leaves. The plantlets that grow on the edges of each leaf fall easily and root wherever they land.

Caring

  • Plant it in a terra cotta pot with drainage holes in the bottom.
  • Use a sandy, well drained soil such as a cactus potting mix or one part peat moss mixed with two parts loam and sand.
  • Repot in the spring but only if the plant outgrows its pot.
  • Use a container that is only slightly larger than the original pot.
  • Place your plants in a bright location with plenty of direct sunlight.
  • Kalanchoe plants require a minimum of four hours of sun daily and grow best in temperatures that range between 50 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Water after the soil dries to a depth of about 2 inches during the spring and summer months with room-temperature water.

Plating

In temperate regions, Kalanchoe pinnata is grown as an indoor ornamental plant. Like most succulents, this one does not support frost. It is advisable to leave it in an environment not descending to less than 10°C. It prefers a well draining ground, which prevents its roots from rotting. In the tropics, Kalanchoe pinnata is grown outdoors in gardens. It is in general, by escaping from the gardens that it becomes naturalized.
