RE: Name this plant please?

It's a Kalanchoe, one of the ones commonly called "flapjack", I think. The colour of the leaves becomes deeper at flowering time. It might be Kalanchoe luciae, or K. thyrsiflora. Generally they flower then die off, but make a lot of baby plants around the base. Also any leaf can be removed and propagated to make a new plantlet

RE: Name this plant please?

just cut off the flower

and lay it on some damp soil ... maybe held in position with a few toothpicks...

it will root in ...

might not hurt to put the pot and all into a baggie.. to increase humidity while it roots ... i would leave it open on top .... in bright but not direct light ...

if you try to bury it.. it MIGHT rot before it roots ...


RE: Name this plant please?

Looks like it's K. luciae.

Please ask on the cacti/succulent forum about what to do with your cutting. The above advice is opposite of what I'd do, but it would be best for you to hear from folks who have propagated this particular plant.
