My sister visited our family for a month during the January term, she is currently in college, and brought home this one plant home with her. It has been living indoors for the past few months. She gave it to me and said she didn't want to take it back, she didn't want it sitting on the long car ride and didn't want it back at the place she is staying. Have no clue what it is. The 'leaves' are a little furry and soft, if that is any indication of what it is although someone here will probably know. Thanks in advance Smiling

Welcome!

Its a Kalanchoe, maybe Kalanchoe Tomentosa

Hi & welcome!

You can see pics of that species here:
Panda Plant (Kalanchoe tomentosa)

If you can acclimate your plant to enough direct light that the leaves point up at the tips, it will be able to be as healthy and vigorous as possible.
