I was at my garden store and they had this plant I've never seen before. It was the only one of its kind in the whole store and the workers didn't know what kind of plant it was. I bought it and want to care for it but obviously can't do so properly unless I know what kind of plant it is. Can you help me identify it? Thank you

Some kind of Kalanchoe with a very odd fasciation, abnormality, maybe K. longiflora.

Yes, it is. I would have taken it home too. Kalanchoe is my best guess.

If it's a genetic chimera, that's cool. If it's a fasciation due to mites or other malady, that's not.

It could be some type of Gall, or virus or mutation, but I would think parasitic/investation would be most likely since it appears mostly in tips/affecting new growth, how ever it is cool.

there is a discussion on this thing too, but on a K thyrsiflora
