I come from a long line of Green Thumbs, but up until recently couldn't even keep a plant alive!! I have been under the assumption that this plant is a Kalanchoe, but every time I look up Kalanchoe I see a broader leaf, although similar flowers. My plant is growing tall and thin and blossomed again this year, but the blossoms aren't even little bundles like pictures I see.

Hi & welcome!

Yes, it's some kind of Kalanchoe. It doesn't quite match blossfeldiana or laciniata. Maybe some kind of hybrid.

You may see more compact growth with more light. Ideally the plant should "see" the sun for hours a day, without a curtain in the way.

Ok. Good advice. It does sit in a window that gets a lot of light, curtain is closed sometimes. Will it continue to bloom throughout the summer?

If it does stop blooming during the longer, hotter days, it should start again over winter/early spring, conditions permitting (not too dark of a spot, not getting too dry).
