I pulled this out of the dumpster at work 2 years ago and it was practically dead. My mother and I brought it back to life but I dont know what kind of plant it is. It recently ooked like its starting to reproduce but im not certain. If anyone knows what this is and proper care id be very grateful. I live in SE Pennsylvania if that hells but it it was in a pot and was probably store bought from a grocery store.

It looks like Flaming Katy (Kalanchoe blossfeldiana) to me also, lovely plants with beautiful flowers.

What a nice rescue and about to bloom too! I agree it is Kalanchoe blossfeldiana.

Thanks for letting me know what it is! I am very grateful. I like it a lot and it grew tremendously since I first found it. Though its never bloomed before but I look forward to it!

I'm not sure about this but I seem to remember reading something about after the initial bloom is done, to bloom again, certain requirements need to be observed. Something about temperature maybe...
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

The one I have is just starting to bud outdoors, so winter/spring blooms depending on location.

Mine's been under fluorescent lights for years and it hasn't bloomed in years.

Permission is over-rated. I've said this before and people thought it was a joke: go early in the morning, carry a clipboard with you, and if anybody asks what you're doing, say you're with corporate. It always works.
Keep going!

Your right I guarantee it will work. I work for the sanitation department and empty dumpsters for a living. Today my boss and I drove around loging dumpsters and there conditions. And beleave me nobody want to be questioned about there garbage.

A short-day bloomer. Needs more hours of dark than light to bloom.
