Originating from southwest Madagascar, this succulent plant, commonly known as mother of thousands, has traversed borders to acclimate in various tropical and subtropical regions​ as an ornamental and is now an invasive threat in regions of South America​. Bearing a unique reproductive mechanism, it propagates not just through seeds but vegetatively from plantlets that sprout on its leaf margins, a trait that contributes to its invasive nature. The therapeutic potential of this plant encompasses a spectrum of applications, ranging from alleviating insomnia, arthritis, anxiety, and depression, to fortifying the immune system and improving mental health​. Photographed in Bogotá, Colombia.
