Unknown Wavy Tipped Succulent
I recently bought a small succulent, potted in a roughly 4" by 3" wide pot. The pot contains two small plants that sprout trumpet shaped leaves, flatten, fat, and ending in 5 wavy "toes." It's green and very soft, and the leaves will droop slightly when it hasn't been watered for a week, and they perk up when watered. the stalks have very fine reddish/brown hairs. When one of the leaves is broken open, it looks more like aloe. there also appears to be a small stalk growing that looks like it will flower - the small bud at the tip is finer than a pencil lead and looks orange/yellow.
Any help identifying this would be helpful!

From your description this could be a Kalanchoe, which there are many different ones. Is it possible that it's the panda plant, which has soft hairy leaves, with darker edges?
Please send a picture if possible - your description is great, but a picture will jog my memory better.
If it is a Kalanchoe or similar, water thoroughly then allow to dry between waterings. Bright light is a must, and never allow them to sit in a saucer of water, and also make sure the pot has a drainage hole. Well drained soil, and a pebble mulch will help keep your succulent plant happy.
Happy Succulent Growing!
