Type Species

Kalanchoe beharensis (Elephant's ear Kalanchoe) is a plant species in the succulent genus Kalanchoe, endemic to Madagascar.

It is a fairly large shrub in stature, up to 6 m tall. It has large, triangular opposite leaves which are irregularly lobed and typically covered with felt-like hair. In mature leaves, the hair is rusty, or even golden, on top and silvery on the underside. The leaves can reach 12-35 cm long and 7-35 cm wide. It has green-yellow urn-shape flowers with violet veining.


It is grown as a decorative indoor plant, being very easy to culture. Propagation is by cutting or breaking off a leaf, letting it sit in the shade for two or three days, and then repot the leaf so it is partly covered by soil.
