Alligator Plants Grow Well in Louisiana – Science 34

There are several names for a plant with bell shape flowers, one of them is Alligator Plants, and the plant recent scientific name is Kalanchoe daigremontiana.

The plant is native to the island of Madagascar, Africa. Then it separates to other tropical regions.

Alligator Plants have been transported to America, moreover, the plants have adapted easily to several states.

We may find the plants in the states such as:

- Florida
- Hawaii
- Louisiana and other warmer states.

Even thought some of our neighbors said that the plant is rare, but we have seen Alligator Plants are sold in some markets.

We bought it from a nearby farmer market with reasonable price about a couple years ago.

I think this bell shape flowers plant is easy to grow and maintain. Like other succulents, the plants no need much water, and may live for years.
