    Hi, all!
    I am new to this forum and need your help to identify the flower that I have. I do not know the name but many people told me that it's $100Millionaire Tree and it just seems that sense because my tree gives me its baby from its leaves, it means every leave gives me between 30-36 baby trees. The leaves are like the crocodile tail and the baby tree will fall from the big leave and form another small tree. TIA.

    Don't know the Latin name, but we used to call it a Mexican Hat plant many years ago, and collect the seeds to plant (until we ran out of room!).

    Thanks. I found the name: Mother of thousands, mother of millions, Bryophylum daigremotianum. You right, if we keep planting then we will run out of room.

    This plant comes up in the forums from time to time. It is an interesting house plant--easy to grow and very easy to propagate. I think it is a great plant for children!

    Here is a link to one of the past threads about the plant, you can search the forums for others.

    It is know by many common names. It has been named Bryophyllum daigremontianum, but is more correctly Kalanchoe daigremontiana.
