Mother of Millions (Kalanchoe daigremontiana) is a fascinating and easy-to-grow succulent known for its ability to produce tiny plantlets along the edges of its leaves. Here are detailed planting and care instructions to help you successfully grow this unique plant:

### 1. Propagation

Mother of Millions is typically propagated from the tiny plantlets it produces. Here’s how:

– **Collect Plantlets:** Gently remove several plantlets from the mother plant’s leaves. It’s best to select healthy-looking ones.

– **Prepare Soil:** Use a well-draining cactus or succulent mix. You can make your own mix by combining potting soil with perlite or sand to improve drainage.

– **Pot Selection:** Choose a pot with drainage holes to prevent water from accumulating at the bottom. This is crucial to avoid root rot.

– **Planting:** Lay the plantlets on top of the soil. There’s no need to bury them deep. Press them lightly into the soil to ensure contact. You can also let the plantlets root in water before planting.

### 2. Location and Light

– **Light:** Mother of Millions requires plenty of bright, indirect sunlight. Direct sun can scorch the leaves, so a spot that receives morning sun and afternoon shade is ideal.

– **Indoors:** Near a south-facing window where it gets plenty of light but is protected from the harsh afternoon sun.

### 3. Watering

– **Watering Technique:** Water deeply, then allow the soil to completely dry out before watering again. Over-watering is a common mistake.

– **Frequency:** This will vary depending on your climate, but generally, watering every 1-2 weeks in the growing season (spring and summer) and reducing to once a month or less in the dormant season (fall and winter) is a good rule of thumb.

### 4. Temperature and Humidity

– **Temperature:** It prefers temperatures between 60°F and 85°F (15°C – 29°C). Avoid temperatures below 40°F (4°C) as it is not frost-tolerant.

– **Humidity:** Mother of Millions is not particularly demanding about humidity levels. Average indoor humidity should be fine.

### 5. Fertilizing

– **Fertilizer:** Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength, once a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in the dormant season.

### 6. Repotting

– **When to Repot:** Repotting every 2-3 years or when the plant has outgrown its pot is sufficient. This is also a good time to remove any dead leaves and check the health of the roots.

– **Pot Size:** Choose a pot that is just one size larger than the current one. Ensuring the pot has adequate drainage is more important than its size.

### 7. Potential Issues

– **Pests:** Keep an eye out for common succulent pests like aphids and spider mites. Use insecticidal soap or neem oil to combat these pests.

– **Diseases:** Over-watering can lead to root rot. Ensure proper drainage in the pot and soil to prevent this.

### 8. Important Notes

– **Invasiveness:** In some regions, Mother of Millions is considered invasive. Always dispose of unwanted plantlets responsibly.

– **Toxicity:** The plant is toxic if ingested, so keep it out of reach of pets and children.

By following these detailed instructions, you should be able to enjoy the unique beauty of Mother of Millions without much hassle. Remember, its care is mostly about mimicking its natural, semi-arid environment.
