Correct me if I’m wrong but I’m pretty sure those are pups and not flowers. They’re called “mother of a thousand” because they make hundreds of props along each leaf.

This only proves OP took the photo from someone else. It doesn't prove hdr wasn't used.

Edit: nvm, the pictures are different. Looks like the picture he took probably had effects already applied to it and he just took it to another level.

m8 I'm just trying to be helpful here, you asked if the plant actually looked like this post implies, and I took the time to find an image that seems more likely.

No need to be rude to people being friendly.

If you actually look at both pictures OP's is altered. The stem of the plant is freaking neon green.

and I would bet the previous picture already had hdr applied to it as well as the colors look unnatural as well. Yeah, I didn't notice the difference between the two pictures at first. The picture is so heavily doctored.

This is the original plant, I believe. Still pretty, but not neon!

Not HDR, just saturation up to 9000.

Yeah, the only way to see this in real life is by being on a decently hefty dose of acid or mushrooms. Real colors just don't get that exciting.

You're correct. It's not flowering at all. It just products a lot of baby plants. If you look closely, you can tell that each "petal" is a net plant start.

I love kalanchoe and use them often in my container garden. I always wondered why the "blooms" seemed to last forever, compared to other flowering plants. Now I know why. Thanks!

Has anyone tested the DMT contents of this plant? Because it looks like it should have a bunch.

  1. Repost
  2. The saturation level is over 9000
  3. There is not a single flower in this picture. These are leaves that produce miniature plants (plantlets, pups, whatever you want to call them; a form of asexual reproduction) on their edges.

I’ve seen that sub but for some reason a lot of the stuff on there doesn’t seem like it really belongs. I get super weirded out by legit examples and many of the stuff on there just isn’t bad or straight up isn’t the right kind of texture.

I love flowers, from ladyslippers to plumeria, but this is the first time I’ve seen a “kalanchoe” and it is beyond beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

I hope to see one in real life some time in the future now that I know these exist!

PMmeifyourepooping

I don’t want you to get your hopes up, so just so you know it’s a succulent and these are not flowers but propagations from the edges of the leaf, and the saturation is out of this world, as these plants are green in real life. This is really cool, and it is indeed a ‘real’ picture, but it’s like what a kalanchoe would post of itself on instagram and the tagged version looks like one of these which is still beautiful but not this crazy mantis shrimp display of variation. They’re super easy to grow and to prop!

Come visit us at r/proplifting for cool propagated plants and discussion!

To add - apparently there are over 100 species of Kalancho. Ive had a pretty cool variation for 2 years and only yesterday did a google thon to finally figure out what the hell it was! The one I have grows baby plants on the tips to self propagate. Also has a stalk that blooms and flowers and then main plant dies. Mine is nicknamed Donkey Ear or its full name of Kalanchoe gastonis-bonnieri.

I'm a very amateur gardener and my wife and I are getting more hooked daily. Going to be taking some deepdives into that sub!

Is this original OP? If so, nice find. I honestly don't know how rare they are in the wild but I would be pretty happy to spot one of these on a hike or something. Beautiful!

I've also thought kalanchoe as being rather dull houseplant from what I see available at nurseries and markets. I stand corrected. That's beautiful!

This succulent can be found in any garden center, although it’s a lot more earth toned when you don’t crank the saturation dial all the way up.
