Mother of Thousands

I haven't been crafting these days because the hot weather has totally knocked me out, it seems all I want to do lately is sit infront of an electric fan or just sleep. I haven't much to post but I cannot bear to see my blog at a standstill. Having little to do I went through my archives and found one post which reminded me of a particular subject and so I decided to get back to the subject treated in that old post ... click here to understand what I'm talking about.
Now if you have read that old post just take a look at the plant as it is today after nearly a year...
(scroll down to see picture)

Non ho nuovi lavori questi giorni perchè il caldo mi butta giù, sembra che l'unica cosa che voglio fare è stare davanti al ventilatore o dormire. Non ho molto da aggiungere ma non sopporto di vedere il mio blog ad un punto morto allora ho fatto un giro nel mio archivio e ho trovato un post che mi ha ricordato una cosa in particolare e così ho deciso di tornare sul soggetto trattato in quel vecchio post ... cliccate qui per capire di cosa parlo.
Adesso se avete letto il vecchio post, date un occhiata alla stessa pianta com'è oggi dopo quasi un anno...

... nice change eh?
I still think of home when I look at it, and makes me sigh.
I made a thorough search and found out it is called Kalancheo Daigremontiana (botanical name). It is better known as - Mother of thousands or Devil's backbone.
I also found out the origins of this plant - Madagascar.
Unfortunately its only flaw ... it is very poisionious.
Here are a few links with information :

... bel cambiamento, vero?
Quando la guardo penso ancora a casa.
Ho fatto una ricerca approfondita e ho scoperto che si chiama Kalancheo Daigremontiana (nome botanico).
E' meglio conosciuta con il nome
- Mother of thousands o Devil's backbone.
Ho anche scoperto che è una pianta originaria del Madagascar.

Sfortunatamente il suo unico difetto ... è velenosa.

Ecco qualche sito con informazione:

Wow, Sue! Must be the perfect spot for this plant! I know what you mean about a little piece of home... I used to take pieces of my mom's plants, too! Blessings to you!

Ciao Sue buona serata!

Wow! It has really grown! I remember when you first posted about it!

As far as the weather, we were blessed last week with fall like temps. Too bad, it's gone now! More hot July like weather on the way! I think it's the humidity I hate the most! You cannot even walk outside without getting sticky!

Doreen said...

Oh this is so nice to read about sis...as you said Mum has so many of these on her terrace : )
I'm so glad you were able to grow a 'piece of home' to enjoy every day!
Hugs and Blessings,
Doreen

Doreen, I wish mum could see it, it's different from mum's only in colour, mum's plant is darker nearly brown but that's because it gets more sun I guess.
Mine is an emerald green.

Why, I ask, do people grow poisonous plants at home? : )

Maura said...

ehi!ammazza come è cresciuta!!!si vede che ci sai fare con le piante io sono riuscita a far morire anche le piante grasse:(((

@ Zen
I didn't know it was poisonous when I planted the seedlings ... I only found out it is, lately. Many of the plants we have in our homes are poisonous without our knowing.

The plant is beautiful and I like it very much. That is true about a lot of plants being poisonous and we don't know it. Just think of the lovely Poincettia. I think it's poisonous also. There is another that I grow but can't remember the name. In any case, we just have to be careful to wash our hands if we take cuttings, etc.
