It was suggested to me that this is a kalanchoe. With that in mind, Bracteata most closely resembles what this is according to my interpretation of Palmbob's photos in Plant Files. The only difference being the leaves on mine are serrated. Could it be because it is young? I am really anxious to learn. Any help would be appreciated.

Not a very clear pic. K. blossfeldiana is very common, have you ruled that out?

I think you have a Crassula there, not a Kalanchoe.

Thanks for the input. I am certain it is not a Blossfeldiana. I will take a better photo in the morning. The stems are not woody at all. It is sturdy, but the leaf and stem structure looks fragile. I need to peruse Crassula options in Plant Files... Also in the a.m. Thanks again for the help.

Try Crassula sarmentosa http://kumbulanursery.co.za/plants/crassula-sarmentosa-ssp-sarmentosa , and if you can take a close-up shot of the leaves that will help tremedously!
