Had anyone ever heard of a love plant and have a picture.
We are lookong for a plant that my friend had years ago.
it grows only if there is lots of love in the house and if something tragic happens like divorce and can die. Any help would be great

RE: Love plant????

It would certainly help if you could describe the plant, the shape of the leaves, texture, edges, etc. and whether it grew upright, or as a vine, or whether it got woody stems, flowers, color, etc.

Hi Nikki,

Check the thread you put in the C+S forum. I don't know what plant you're talking about, but if you're looking for a cute valentine's day plant, Hoya Kerrii is great. Each leaf is shaped like a heart. The leaves are succulent. I posted some links on the C+S forum...check em out :)

RE: Love plant????

Seems I've heard Bryophyllum pinnatum/Kalanchoe pinnata called 'Love Plant'.

RE: Love plant????

Thank you to all of you that tried to help me, it was much appreciated. nanw 4wi you were right on the Kalanchoe pinnata, this is the one. My friend came over and I let her see the pics and that is the one she was referring to. Thank you again to all of you.
