Re: Plant ID

Yep....that's exactly what it is, it's in the Kalanchoe  family....It's a 
bryophyllum, not sure exactly which, since it's hard  to ID from the 
photo....many of them look a like except for minor  details.    Very easy to grow.  This 
is the darned plant  that is growing in my gutters, and every where else....how 
on earth it manages  to get in those places is anyone's guess.
It also has the commo name of "Chandelier plant" because it blooms in  
winter, with huge stalks with blooms that hang down in a circular like patter,  much 
like a chandelier or one of those new shower heads that are huge.   LOL   
Easy to propogate from the leaf.  Some folks also call them  aligator plants 
here, because the children take two leaves put them together and  it looks like 
the head of an aligator.  Okay....too much  info...sorry.
Jim would know more about your Zamia since, if I remember  correctly, it's a 
Florida native in the Cycad family.....called "Coontie"....or  so my florida 
born Dh says.

Also for  Jim and any of you far southern folk, and for northerners, like Sue
who  love houseplants, could you look at this photo for  me?


She ripped these leaves off another  plant that seemed to have the same form
and size as the Zamia.  Anyone  recognize this?  When I asked, she mentioned
something about mothers  and thousands, but clearly couldn't remember.  Does
it look like some  sort of Kalanchoe?
