Kalanchoe beharensisis a tree size succulent plant from Madagascar.
It keeps up the Kalanchoe legacy that is: hardy and it
grows very easy from leaves or pieces of stem.
even bigger bush if it was not that the branches are often blown off by the wind. The stems are not strong enough for the heavy leaves full of water.
Showing size of leaf. The bullterrier posed for size. One leaf will easy cover her head.
The pattern where the leaves were attached on the stem is
pretty. There is a hollow as if it was scooped out. Smooth and shiny. With points like thorns on the rim but these "thorns" where the leaves were attached are blunt and do not cut or scratch.
The inflorescence is very large and heavy.
It is a pity that the flowers are so very small but beautiful seen close-up striped in pale red pink and green.
