How did the Love Leaf get its name?

There is a Caribbean legend that says many years ago, a maiden fell in love with a young man who had come from another island but then had to return to his home. One day she came upon a leaf that had fallen in the tropical forest and while thinking of him she gently carved their initials into the leaf. She brought the leaf home and placed it next to her on a mound of soil. As she slept and dreamed of her love, the leaf mysteriously began to sprout. As it grew into a beautiful lush plant so did her love for him and it gave her much pleasure. Believing the plant was magical, she wished for her lovers return. Little did she know that as her plant grew so did his love for her and he returned to her only to live happily ever after.

Kalanchoe pinnata (syn. Bryophyllum calycinum, Bryophyllum pinnatum, also known as the Air Plant, Life Plant, Miracle Leaf and the Goethe Plant) is a succulent plant native to Madagascar. It is distinctive for the profusion of miniature plantlets that form on the margins of its leaves, a trait it has in common with the other members of the Bryophyllum section of the Kalanchoe genus.

Much of the reason for the widespread naturalization of this plant can be traced to its popularity as a house and garden plant. It has become naturalized in temperate regions of Asia, the Pacific Islands, including Hawaii, and the Caribbean.The writer Johaan 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.
