Hey I'm having trouble identifying this plant. My wife got it for valentines but refrained from keeping the tags and info unfortunately so I have no clue what to do at this point. It multiplies by stem constantly and I have about 12 in less than a year from just the one she got me. It blooms red flowers every 1-3 months and survives well without a watering schedule.
I appreciate the input and I can see a slight resemblance but I don't believe it's that. The leaves hint at succulent. They are thick the flowers sprout in 4 or 6's, and are small, about an inch when bloomed with 8ish red flower petals that overlap.( if any of this info helps)
Oh. Now that I look closer the leaves match the kalanchoe. Mine aren't spiky they are rounded. Huh, well what gets me is the flowers that bloom (wish they where in bloom for a pic) look like the sedum, yet the leaves match the kalanchoe. Is there a variation that might be like this maybe like a cross breed? I mean at least we have it narrowed down if not solved at this point but I am curious if its a possibility considering the similar types of plants involved.
Thank you guys again for the input I've never gotten such good response anywhere else like this.
My guess would be calandiva if it has the double flower petals. Simple kalanchoes have four petals. Though Calandiva is just a variant of kalanchoe. Beautiful house plant that I gift to black thumbs just to boost their plant keeping confidence.

If by black thumbs you mean "has hard time growing" then I can see why I'm having issues with its multiplying ability considering my green thumb lol . I wouldn't mind it if I had myself a big patch of yard to grow it in but alas I do not, So I've been taking the extras and planting them around my apt complex in moist plain corners to thrive and bloom. They said it's ok as long as I keep them at bay and take them with me when I move.

I would love to see them bloom in full glory with the sun, but living in northern utah, they are stuck indoors, where it is a battle to keep them from getting too leggy. I understand the issues with them multiplying. Having ran out of people to gift them to, I have resorted to throwing cuttings into the worm bin (they still grow) instead of another pot.
