I acquired this plant from a friend recently, but am unsure how to properly care for it! The leaves are quarter sized at their largest, and they are stiff and rubbery feeling. enter image description here

This is a Kalanchoe blossfeldiana. It is a very hardy plant, drought-resistant and pest-resistant.

It needs some pruning if it grows too long and loves brights light. Does not like overwatering.

It may have very beautiful flowers, but it’s tricky to make it bloom at home.

  • That does appear to be it, though this little guy is much smaller than all the pictures I see. It must just be a newer plant. Thank you!

  • Exactly, its leaves vary in size depending on age, amount of light, water, season, fertilizers etc. Have fun with this cool plant!
