Flat, oval leaves with fat stem
I named him elefante
I bought this cutie today at the Farmer's Market and COMPLETELY forgot to ask what he was! I'd appreciate some help so I know how to take care of him properly!
Hi Juliana, what you have is a nice specimen of Kalanchoe thyrsiflora, the Flapjacks Plant.
These easy going and eventually huge plants are drought tolerant, pest resistant and can withstand considerable neglect. One thing they can't take is conditions that are too dim for them. Luckily, you're in Florida, and you should be able to grow this plant outdoors for most of the year.
In time, the biggest problem with these plants is that they get really tall and top heavy, making them prone to toppling in a wind storm, or if the pot is too light. I recommend planting them in a sturdy and heavy pot.
