Mother of Thousands

This week brought us an outbreak of blooms from our Mother of Thousands Plant also called Alligator Plant, or Mexican Hat Plant. We have several of these blooming in the greenhouse at the moment. The plant is a succulent native to Madagascar. I am not sure motherofthousandshow it ended up at the greenhouse but as the name suggests, it spreads pretty easily. You can find out more information from Wikipedia. One item to note is that all parts of the plant are poisonous and can be fatal if ingested by infants or small pets.
