Mother of thousands is perfect for novice houseplant-lovers and gets its name from the many baby plantlets that grow along the edges of its serrated leaves. It takes from two to five years to mature. When grown outside, it has small, tubular, dangling pinkish-gray flowers that bloom at the start of the warm season; the mother plant dies after blooming. Locate the plant in bright, but indirect light for several hours per day. The mother of thousands is drought-tolerant, but not as much as many succulent species. It'll do better if it receives regular and gradual hydration, especially during its growing season. Still, it only needs water once every few weeks, even in spring and summer.
Houseplants will benefit from spending the summer outside; just make sure to introduce them to the outside atmosphere gradually and begin their outdoor stay with limited morning sun. Too much direct sunlight may cause leaves to become sunburned. Remember to move the plant back inside before outdoor temperatures drop to the 40 degree F. range.
