Bryophyllum is the website dedicated to "the joys of cultivating plants of the genus Bryophyllum in the family of Crassulaceae." Byrophyllums (try saying that ten times really fast) are those plants commonly called "Mother of Thousands" or "Mother of Millions" amongst others. This website features information on plant identification and culture for these unique plants. It also has a gallery, and a really slow forum and exchange page.

The design of the website is pretty utilitarian and doesn't offer any frills but in away it is very apt because I don't find these succulent plants to be extraordinary. They're nice enough plants and I have a couple in my Cacti & Succulent collection but once you get over the "oh how neat" feeling of seeing the pups on the leaves you get over it. The Google ads on the site in the middle of the text could be described as intrusive but again it fits this plant perfectly. Because once you have one growing you'll be finding pups growing all over your growing space.

I give
★ ★ ★ ★ out of 5 stars because it is a site dedicated to a specific plant. I have to admire the time and energy spent on keeping the site alive there should be more pages like this from plant lovers on the internet that share information about whatever plant you're passionate about.

If you have a garden related product or service that you'd like to have reviewed visit this blog.
