The leaves feel little plump and watery. Is this succulent? How do I care for it?

They are Kalanchoe blossfeldiana, and they are tender succulents. Care should be taken when watering - let the soil in the pot to dry out a bit before you water so it feels a bit dry to the touch on top, then water well and allow the excess to drain away freely. They like bright light - they will do well in sun, but also just bright daylight. Further care instructions here https://www.growerdirect.com/how-to-care-for-your-kalanchoe-plant

  • The link doesn't work. But I will try another source. – 4-K Dec 17 '19 at 17:00
  • That's weird, its working for me - try this one instead thespruce.com/growing-kalanchoe-plants-1902982 – Bamboo Dec 17 '19 at 19:10
  • The plant has now closed all its flowers? What went wrong? – 4-K Jan 11 at 16:36
  • Probably nothing - if they faded in colour, they're just finished, that's all. Like most plants, they don;t stay in flower long – Bamboo Jan 11 at 18:12
  • They are mostly closed. I will update with a picture tomorrow. – 4-K Jan 16 at 17:09

You already know the name of the flower, but for the future, there is an app called PlantNet that helps you find out the name of the plants. It's very good! Jenter image description hereust take a picture of it and upload it to the app. https://identify.plantnet.org/

    It's not a bad app, but useless if you want to know the specific variety of, say, a particular Juniper - all it'll tell you is it's a Juniper – Bamboo Jan 11 at 18:14
