Hi Robin - it looks like a kalanchoe, maybe a Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe humilis 'Desert Surprise')

Hey Frenchy, I thought it looked like a kalanchoe too. Any tips for caring for it?

You definitely want it in a pot with drainage holes and use well draining soil mix like cactus mix with added pumice or perlite or chicken grit. 75% cactus mix/25% pumice, perlite or grit.Treat it like a succulent. Water when dry and put it in a sunny place in your home. Green Grin!

That's what I kind of figured too, will tell the owner of the plant. Thanks for your help.
