Share at Facebook

উদ্ভিদ বিজ্ঞান বইতে আছে অপুষ্পক আর সপুষ্পক ফুল... আমি পাথরকুচি ফুলকে অপুষ্পক ফুল বলেই জানতাম... কিন্তু ইদানিং শুনছি এই গাছে নাকি ফুলও হয়... শুনতে শুনতে একসময় চোখের সামনেই পড়ে গেল এই গাছ, তাও আবার ফুল সহ... আমি অনেক সময় নিয়ে দেখলাম এই গাছের ফুল... আশেপাশের মানুষজন অবাক হয়ে আমাকে দেখছিল...

Common name of the flower is American Life Plant, Miracle Plant, Air Plant, etc. In Bangladesh we call this as Pathor Kuchi(পাথর কুচি). Botanical name of the plant is Kalanchoe pinnata. It is from the plant family Crassulaceae. It is native to Madagascar.

Most interesting part of this plant is the leaf. It is having saw-toothed at the border of the leaf. From the corner of the leaf, a new plant use to grow. Possibly this is the reason to call this life plant or miracle plant.

Young Miracle Plant

Flower of the plant is interesting too. Color of the flower is light green with light violet shade. Flowers bloom as a cluster at the erect stem of the plant.

This plant can grow better at shaded area or darker places. Doesn't require too much care. I had this plant at my pot during my childhood.

Photos of this article were taken from Mohera, Tangail(মহেরা, টাঙ্গাইল). During the January 2012 I went there to visit the Jomidar Palace. Here is another version of pathorkuchi ful, red color.
