My grandma gave me this plant and, so far, I have not had any luck finding what it is. She thought it was part of the jade family, but all those look like they are more smooth and this one have lobed leaves (From what I can tell.) Does anyone have any idea? Or at least can point me in the right direction?

A Kalanchoe, perhaps?

It looks like Kalanchoe to me also, for comparison check out images in our database for Lavender Scallops (Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi)

@purpleinopp may be able to offer suggestions, I think she grows a few types of Kalanchoe. Tiffany, is it you who grows Kalanchoe?

I agree. Looks like Florist Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe blossfeldiana). Not sure which one.

I think that is possible. It could be a slightly wilted and immature Kalanchoe Sexangularis.

I don't think it's Kalanchoe sexangularis, which has cupped leaves.

Hi & welcome, Christina! Thanks for the shout-out, Lin! I'm not sure which Kal this is either in its' current condition. If it gets adjusted to more light, the new growth should be more upright and recognizable. Not unreasonable to hope for some blooms in the near future after that. Best luck!
