From Tampa, Florida.
Would you know the name of this plant?
Also, this is, I think, the mature size of this plant.
The "leaves" are soft and easily breakable, almost like a petal but not like a "regular" green succulent.
Pictures of Kallanchoe found on line don't look like the ones attached...
The "leaf" of the Kallanchoe seems to be flat and green, the one on the picture is kind of grey and in a tube shape.

Thank you very much.

Welcome!

Someone had a Kalanchoe in that spot and you have just discovered why they are called 'Mother of Thousands'.

I agree, lovely Kalanchoe and it looks like possibly Chandelier Plant (Kalanchoe delagoensis)

Yes it is a Kalanchoe. They are known for dropping babies everywhere (and then being hard to remove later down the road). Maybe in your climate that would be manageable. The flowers are lovely and red and rather chandelier-like.

@Philipwonel I didn't get the page because of spelling (Baja_Costero) but caught a whiff of the action anyway. Smiling

The "leaves" of the plant that are on the picture have a tube shape while the ones of the Kalanchoe are flat.

Thanks for the summons :+) I think Lin had it with K. delagoensis. The plant in question looks like its' leaves are round in cross-section, tubular shape.

Tampa, I remember which is the "tubular" species by one of its' synonyms: tubiflora.

It should get taller until it decides to bloom or a strong gust of wind knocks it over.
