What is this plant?

Indiana, United States Us

It is a light green, thick leaved fuzzy plant that belonged to my deceased mother in law. I need to know what it is so I can find out what it needs. I recently inherited it. Any help would be much appreciated.




Looks like Kalanchoe beharensis.

ps keep taking tip cuttings as they can get very leggy.

i thought perhaps one of the scented pelargoniums. they tend to have furryier leaves and go leggy like that.

This plant (at least from the photo) appears to have paired leaves which rules the genus Pelargonium out. My first thought admittedly was that too :-)

Thank you! I have been trying to figure this out for two weeks with no success. I did follow Fractals link and its a Kalanchoe beharensis Maltese Cross. You all are amazing! Thank you!!
