clusters of scalloped leaves, long creeping stems





This was labeled a Crassula when I bought it, but it doesn't seem quite like a jade to me.

Those scalloped leaves? Is that jade-like?

It grew so much in a year that I repotted it last month, and now it seems to be ailing -- I don't know if it's from the change, or from an infestation? There's some white growth along the stems .... aphids? I'm trying to identify so that I know how best to treat it -- would so appreciate any input!

Thank you!

Scalloped leaves...

This on it's own, without even a picture is enough to tell me that's it's a Kalanchoe. This one is Kalanchoe blossfeldiana, or Flaming Katy. See more about it here; Kalanchoe blossfeldiana. It sounds like you may have some issue, whether that's scale or mealy bugs, not sure from your description. There are lots of remedies in the Plant Pests E-Book.
