Looking for some advice...I've had this beauty for a few months. It's grown super tall, but I've noticed some of the leaves drying up, can anyone tell me why? And how to fix it? Any help would be really appreciated!

It's crying out for more light. Kalanchoe likes full sun, I have several indoors but they need lights for a more compact growth Your plant under T5HO bulb.

I did move it into the sun because it was getting so tall, but the leaves started to burn. Should I be worried about that or...? Thank you for your help!

Acclimated to more sun gradually to avoid burning.

Looks like this one (several Kalanchoes/Bryophyllums are called mother-of):
Mother of Thousands (Kalanchoe laetivirens)

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