Kalanchoe Fedtschenkoi f. Compacta. It looks very compact to me. I do not remember it being this compact before. Could it be getting too much light? A new species for me. I started with 2 on window sills. Now have 3 ( they are so easy to reproduce) under lights. They changed to this more compact form. Gene

Here is my Kalanchoe Fedtschenkoi f. Compacta, strted as small cutting late last spring. Moved indoors for the winter, under t5ho lighting. I think it is happy, lot of aerial roots. I don't think you can give this plant too much light.

Yes, that is how mine used to look. Bigger leaves and healthy. How does mine look to you? Gene

Your plant leaves are smaller than my plants. My plant is as close as it can be to a pair of t5ho's so I don't think you can give these too mush light. I water mine about every 3 days. It dries out in a day and a half at the longest, very thirsty plant.

This is K laxiflora violacea much like Fedtschenkoi f. Compacta but smaller leaves.
