Hi, everyone!


A friend of mine gave this beautiful plant about two weeks ago and we are both in doubt about what kind of plant it is.
I've noticed that it grows a pair of leaves on top per week. The leaves at the bottom are turning brownish (maybe am bad at taking care of it). It's about 6 cm tall.

Thanks, here's a picture of the unknown plant:

It looks like it might be a variety of Kalanchoes (Kalanchoe) which are succulents. For comparison, here are two photos from our database, showing leaves:



Kalanchoe are succulents. Does the container have drainage holes? Lower leaves turning brown may be due to rot from the soil retaining too much water.

It also needs more light.
