DD gave me this from a tiny cutting from her hanging basket. Any ideas?

It’s a succulent called Mother of thousands, you can see the babies growing along the edges of the leaves. I had one many years ago.

Thanks tanith, just googled it and that is indeed what the mystery fella' is.

Great name! I have a few grown from a plant I had last year. I'd never looked it up, it certainly produces masses of babies.

Kalanchoe diagremontiana is the Latin name.

Really weird today I had a hospital app to get a splint for my wrist and while I waited I spied there on the window sill was a large Mother of Thousands 😂
