This is not my plant but my friend ask me what it was and i have no clue. She said it shoots a stem, grows leaves and shoots another stem. That is all she told me. Any suggestions would be more than appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Isn't it some type of Kalanchoe?

Jay, do you think that is what your plant is also? I thought Kalanchoe daigremontiana usually had brown spots on it, thinner, more folded leaves?

I don't have that either of these plants. I was just making a suggestion as to what JBs plant might be. The picture I used is from the database.

Oh, thanks! I didn't notice that but see it now that you mention it. Maybe the brown spots only show up in tons of sun? I was just asking (blurting, sorry) out of personal curiosity as I am a new Kalanchoe-phile this year, trying to learn how to recognize them. The brown spots might not be 'something.'

Aside from that, what a cool bunch! Pretty, fast-growing, not too stingy about making some flowers, easy to propagate, not thirsty all of the time. I really like these guys after getting to know a few, briefly, so far, and like all of those I've 'met.'
