So after moving here to Texas and being in the heat for sometime something came up in one of my pots. It's clearly from the old greenhouse, but there were a few different people in that house and don't know everything they were growing, nor in contact with all of them and sometimes new stuff arrives weekly. It's not from the desert house I know that because it was me and only one other person which means it probably came from the tropical house which I didn't keep up with all the plants in there. Any one have any ideas what it is?

My guess was Kalanchoe 'Houghtonii' or one of the other Kals called 'Mother of Thousands' or 'Mother of Millions". They do try to live up to their common names - especially under greenhouse conditions nodding nodding . I could send you a few leaves of Lenophyllum and you could grow your own weapons for a mass takeover of all the south Texas greenhouses.

Hmmm I'm not sure but it does look like a type of kalanchoe! I'm not sure if I should move it to it's own pot or not or just let it live in that pot

It's not K. Houghtonii. I've got those all over the yard and the leaves are skinnier even when young.
Keep calm... and plant something.
