I was wondering if anyone could tell me about this plant. I got it from Walmart and it had red flowers. I lived in a apartment so I kinda gave up on. But I've moved and now I want to try to make it beautiful again..! ie been watering it everyday and it's been in a sunny location. It seems to be doing well as its growing new leaves. Thanks!

Looks like a Kalanchoe

Maybe a variety of Kalanchoe blossfeldiana.

I agree, every day is probably way too much water to keep it happy unless it's been really hot lately (and maybe even then). Before you go to water next time, try sticking your finger (or a wooden skewer) a few inches down into the pot and see how wet it is. Wait until it's drying out deeper down in the pot before you water it again.
