I need to identify a species of Kalanchoe, cultivated in Puerto Rico(not a native species), however I didn't find a good quality material to consult. Does anyone can recommend a taxonomic revision or a key for species, as complete as possible (because I don't know the geographic origin of the plant). I think it may be Kalanchoe, because recently i saw a dna test.
Thanks!

Please, looks the dna results

It isn't familiar to me as a Kalanchoe.

I'm not real familiar with succulents but my first thought was it might perhaps be a variety of Crassula ovata, etoliated (stretched) due to insufficient light. Here are links to our database for a few similar looking plants:

Finger Jade (Crassula ovata 'Gollum')
Spoon Jade (Crassula ovata 'Hobbit')
Jade Plant (Crassula ovata 'Ogre Ears')

The leaves are not a good match for K. delagoensis, K. marnieriana, or K. fedtschenkoi, nor do they match any monstrose Crassula ovata that I have ever seen. I would describe it as none of the above, but I can't help get you much closer than that. The leaf has a petiole, which none of the above plants have.



If your plant is one of the Kalanchoes that supposedly match, it should make a bright colored, pendulous, tubular flower.



The flower should help immensely with an ID in any case.

Hi, Kary. I live in Puerto Rico and have the same plant. The person who gave it to me also didn't have a name for it and I tried to search for info using Google Lens and only found this thread. Have you found any new information about the plant since this was originally posted in 2019? I would really like to know its name and how it reproduces.

I remember watching that discussion on FB. If the genetic test states that it is Kalanchoe, why would it not be a Kal?
