Hello all, I'm hoping you can help identify this plant. It appears to be a succulent with thick moisture-filled leaves that resemble paddles. A friend of mine gave me two chunks of it that broke off her bush, but she didn't know what it was called. I've been growing it indoors for now, but would like to put it in the ground in the spring. One of the plants is beginning to flower. I'm sure someone here will know the name :) Thanks in advance! Edited to add: p.s. I am a TOTAL NEWBIE gardener, so please forgive me if I am the last person alive to know what this is. ;-)

It looks like a Kalanchoe but I'm not sure which one. Take a look through PlantFiles: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/adv_search.php?searcher[common]=&searcher[family]=&searcher[genus]=kalanchoe&searcher[species]=&searcher[cultivar]=&searcher[hybridizer]=&searcher[grex]=&search_prefs[blank_cultivar]=&search_prefs[sort_by]=rating&images_prefs=both&Search=Search

It could also be a cotyledon orbiculata.
