Kalanchoe humilis

DROUGHT TOLERANT when established. This is an incredibly colorful variegated form of an old hybrid that was hard to track down its heritage. The original hybrid was known as ‘Houghton’s Hybrid’, and was a cross between K. diagremontiana and K. delagoensis (a.k.a. K. tubiflora). At some point a variegated sport of this hybrid appeared and ‘Pink Butterflies’ came to be. ‘Pink Butterflies’ is not only uniquely colored but also has an advantage over the original cross. Both parents of the original hybrid are “viviparous”, producing hundreds of tiny plantlets on their leaves that readily fall from the parents and take root with little to no effort. While a novel, and interesting aspect of these plants, (and a great way to get more plants) they can become somewhat of a nuisance if you like a neat, tidy, orderly fashion to your garden or containers. ‘Pink Butterflies’ still produces copious quantities of tiny pink butterfly-like plantlets on its leaves but something in the mutation to a variegate form has taken away the ability for them to root – sometimes a couple might take but in general no. It can still be propagated from cuttings just fine. The brighter the light or sun exposure, the more intense the colors become! Provide a porous soil with adequate drainage, water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, and protect from frost.
