Bryophyllum tubiflorum, a succulent perennial herb originating in Madagascar, grows wild in western coastal districts. Leaves, 6-8cm in length, spotted with purple-black on a gray-green background, with bulbils at tips. The bulbils have fallen on the ground take roots; thus, this species can asexually propagate. Flowers, orange to bright red, set themselves on the stem apexes. Bloom time: May-August.
