Grew this from one of the tiny babies growing off the mother plant. Thank you!

Looks like this one to me:
Donkey Ears (Kalanchoe gastonis-bonnieri)

Hmmm... very interesting! How did it come into your possession?

At first I thought about this because of the edges:
Mother of Thousands (Kalanchoe laetivirens)

but I don't see the lip where leaf body becomes petiole:


It also reminds me of K. rosei:
Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe rosei)

I'm not sure if I've captured its' true nature yet, and feel like I've seen nothing but etiolated growth. I'm going to be more proactive about trying to cultivate normal growth from this species this summer now that I've decided it seems to need a trellis or hanging pot to get enough exposure. It always falls over.

Seedlings? Also very interesting. I've never seen any of mine form any seeds. Did you take any pics of the seeds or pods? Which species was or were blooming @ the time?

Seedlings or plantlets that form on the leaves (not strictly the correct term)?

I think that some of these look like Kalanchoe x houghtonii/Houghtons hybrids.

Salvia and anything unusual

Yes plantlets! Hahaha didn't know what to call them.

I'm seeing a couple images of the hybrid that does resemble what I have! I'm just not 100% sure

Aha! Plantlets/babies.

Is there any sign of variegation on the backs of the leaves?

Okay what about kalanchoe daigremontiana? They are in our greenhouse and I definitely could have taken some little plantlets off of the mom. The ones in our greenhouse are a dark green, but I looked online and saw light ones. They also have the variegation on the underside!

Not too sure about that Kalanchoe daigremontiana has different shaped leaves - look at the photo below and you will see that the base of the leaf is much squarer and curls back in on itself..................
