|I have two plants in one pot and have no idea what either are. They both look 'succulenty'.|

|Both are kalanchoes. The taller one with some spots on the leaf, looks like a Kalanchoe marmorata.|
The other more prolific one that has lots of babies at the edge of the leaves looks like Kalanchoe daigremontiana nicknamed Mother of Thousands.

| First of all, Andy...I love the title of your thread and second...I agree with Mother of Thousands. "They" say they (MoT) or hard to kill/get rid of, but alas not for me. Actually wish I had one still.|
Each cloud has a silver lineing if only you look for it.

|For comparison of the taller plant: Spotted Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe marmorata) and as tarev suggested, the shorter one may be Mother of Thousands (Kalanchoe daigremontiana)|

|I think the shorter one may be K. laetivirens. |
A lot of the pics in the DB entry here for K. diagremontiana also look like K. laetivirens. K. diagremontiana looks just like K. x houghtonii, but there's a little cup shape where leaf meets petiole, the edge of the leaf folds up right at that junction. Brown spots on the leaf backs. This Wiki pic shows that well:
The Kals that make leaf-edge babies (the mother-of ones) have been moved to Bryophyllum.

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.
