Kalanchoe daigremontiana

Kalanchoe daigremontianum is a succulent in the family Crassulaceae. It is native to the Fiherenana River valley and Androhibolava mountains in southwest Madagascar. It has been introduced to numerous tropical and subtropical regions.

Like other members of its genus, it is able to propagate vegetatively from plantlets that develop on its leaf margins. All parts of the plant contain a very toxic steroid known as daigremontianin.
