Mother of Thousands are attractive and unusual looking plants with large green leaves that form baby plantlets along the edges. They multiply easily and rapidly on their own, without any help. How they multiply is they form little clusters of flowers at the end or edges of the leaves. These little flowers are actually little baby plants or plantlets. When these baby plants get detached from the mother plant, they easily take root and begin growing as a new plant anywhere they land. Also known as Mexican Hat Plant, Alligator Plant, and Devil's Backbone.
