My Little Kalanchoe
Karen bought for me this little pot plant. It is really pretty with beautiful little flowers.
Now I'm going to surprise everyone with my little bit of knowledge I gathered about this
It is called Kalanchoe - the only reason I know this is because the label said that is what it is called :)) I googled it to see what I could come up with. Once you start to look for information it is amazing what comes up.
It is a succulent plant native to Madagascar. According to Wikipedia it also has an ingredient in it which can cause cardiac poisoning particularly in grazing animals, this is a problem common in South Africa and Australia.
In traditional medicine it can be used to treat infections, rheumatism and inflammation.
Now on to my favourite part - taking pictures :))
Isn't it a pretty flower - so many petals to the flowers and they are quite tiny.
So I have to thank Karen very much for such an interesting and beautiful present. Isn't she a kind daughter?
