Kalanchoe viguerii ???????

I have had this succulent for years, and it had grown too tall, so I cut out the top and laid it in my kitchen window waiting to replant a few days.

The interesting thing that happened was that it developed a brown edge to the leaves (making me think of Kalanchoe tormentosa), and it gave me a clue to at least the fact that it was probably a Kalanchoe I finally found what looks like a match.
Kalanchoe viguerii. If anyone has a better I.D., I would appreciate it. I found this pic (and many other Kalanchoes I had not seen before at Cactus Shop. If you go here, BTW...how do you like the Kalanchoe 'Pink Butterflies' ???

This one is very pretty. You will have another nice sized plant when you get this potted.

Hey sweetie I think you are right on! I looked around on the internet and it looks to be correct. I love the brown edges! And you can probably just pot the tops off (then wait a week for the raw part to harden off) and plant. How fun!

How pretty! It looks like one I've got that had the name Felt Plant on it when I got it. I can't find it now though when I Google...oh well!

Have a great day!

That's a nice one that I've seen around for a few years but never really learned the name of. Kalanchoe viguerii looks about right to me. Especially if you bought it at a big box store because I think that company you linked to supplies a lot of them to places lik HD.

My money says it is a cv of Kalanchoe tomentosa. Matti
