Chandelier Plants are erect, smooth, fleshy, succulent plants cultivated as ornamental houseplants and rock or "succulent" garden plants. They are very popular because of their ease of propagation, low water requirements, and flowers borne in clusters, well above the vegetative growth.

They are notable because they vegetatively grow small plantlets on the fringes of their leaves, leading to its common names of Mother Of Thousands and Mother Of Millions. It is not the only plant with those common names.

Warning. It contains bufadienolide cardiac glycosides which can cause cardiac poisoning, particularly in grazing animals.

Small plantlets are produced in the axils of the teeth at the tips of the leaves.

They can develop tall flower spikes with clusters of bell-shaped, orange-red flowers at the end of the stems.
