Got this from a woman at church- currently in a pot with some wandering jew- please help me ID it so I can take better care of it! It's gotten all leggy and it seems to "travel" quite a bit- the stems go crazy! The only things I do know about this plant: You can grow it from trimmings- by either placing in water or sticking straight into the soil. Thanks!

I was hoping someone who knows would come along and answer you. I've seen that plant before but just can't come up with the name :-{ I looks like a succulent of some sort. My response will bump it back to the top so, hopefully, someone who knows what it is will see it the second time around. Sorry I can't help.

I can't help either. I had that plant many years ago. My DMIL gave it to me but I can not remember the name.

I was hoping somebody would ID this... My guess was a type of swedish ivy 'Plectranthus' or a type of peperomia.

I'm leaning toward kalanchoe too.

I believe y'all are right--it does look like kalanchoe. I thought it sort of resembled swedish ivy at first glance too, XMelissaX, but the succulent look of the leaves makes me lean more toward kalanchoe.

I have a plant that looks a lot like this one. I know it as brophyllum pinnatum. I have seen it listed as kalanchoe pinnata as well. I sprouts baby plantlets all around the edges of the leaf in the "scalloped" areas.
