I have a Kalanchoe that's leaves are drooping and turning inwards toward the stem. Is this normal?

It could be normal - if you're growing K. daigremontiana. Instead of the branching habit usual to most kalanchoes, K. daigremontiana produces a single stem with succulent, triangular leaves held stiffly at an angle to the stem, with the notched edges curled inward. Young plants sprout in the notches and may root on the plant. This plant produces clusters of small, drooping, grayish purple flowers in winter.
