I have several of these plants -- which seem to propagate well from stem cuttings. The stems are thick - about 1/2-1.5". In my experience they grow to about 5' and seem to grow pretty fast. I am relatively certain that it is a succulent, but have searched all sources that I am aware of and cannot locate! It looks similar to a cotyledon macrantha - a couple of exceptions that are obvious -- leaf shape of unknown is more rounded and edge is curly.
Thank you in advance or your help!

My guess is it's a kalanchoe of some kind.
But I would also like to see the entire plant, please.

Yes!! It is the Kalanchoe carnea, modoc. The picture submitted by nomosho is almost exactly what mine look like --- except mine are in pots and I've never had one bloom...looking forward to that!

Thank you all so much!!
