Toxicity[edit] Several species of Kalanchoe are economically important for causing cardiotoxic effects in sheep and cattle, and diseases affecting the nervous system and muscles known as krimpsiekte ("shrinking disease") or as cotyledonosis.[2] Bryophyllum pinnatum may have similar chemical components, bufadienolide alkaloids.[3] There are many hybrids within Bryophyllum, and also hybrids with Kalanchoe such as Kalanchoe × crenatodaigremontiana (B. laxiflorum (as the synonym B. crenatum) × K. daigremontiana) or Houghton's Hybrid (K. daigremontianum × B. delagoense).

Electricity generation[edit] Tests conducted in Bangladesh by Dr. Kamrul Alam Khan showed crushed leaves of Bryophyllum daigremontianum (পাথরকুচি) is a good electrolyte and it can be used in a battery to generate electricity. 1 kg of crushed Bryophyllum leaves can produce up to 20 kW of power.[citation needed]

Selected species[edit] The three most commonly cultivated species are: Bryophyllum daigremontianum: Devil's Backbone or mother-of-thousands. Native of Madagascar; introduced and naturalized in many parts of tropical and subtropical Africa, Asia (Indian Ocean islands), North America (Florida) and South Africa; cultivated in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh for its medicinal properties. In Bangladesh it is known as Patharkuchi Pata. Bryophyllum pinnatum: Air Plant. Native of Tropical Africa, cultivated or naturalized on many Pacific Islands (Tonga, Hawaii). It is also called the "Goethe Plant" since the famous writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe — who also was an amateur naturalist of some repute — was "passionately fond" of this plant and liked to give the baby plantlets as gifts to friends who visited his home. He also discussed his air plant at length in the essay that was titled Geschichte meiner botanischen Studien ("History of my botanical studies"). Bryophyllum delagoense Bryophyllum proliferum Some other species in this section are: Bryophyllum beauverdii Bryophyllum bouvetii Bryophyllum campanulatum Bryophyllum fedtschenkoi Bryophyllum gastonis-bonnieri Bryophyllum laxiflorum Bryophyllum macrochlamys Bryophyllum manginii Bryophyllum marnierianum Bryophyllum miniatum Bryophyllum proliferum Bryophyllum pubescens Bryophyllum rolandi-bonapartei Bryophyllum rosei Bryophyllum schizophyllum Bryophyllum streptanthum Bryophyllum suarezense Bryophyllum uniflorum
