Identify my lettuce-like succulent!

Looks like lettuce!! Impossible to find on the internet...has thin ruffled, soft leaves with a thick, fleshy stem. Doesn't seem to like COMPLETE indirect sun exposure (hence the yellow leaf!).

Kalanchoe blossfeldiana
by: Jacki

This is a really common plant, but usually you'll find it in a grocery store, covered in yellow, orange, pink or red flowers. The most often used common name is Flaming Katy.

The yellow leaf is not due to light levels, it's due to the age of the leaf. As they get older, they start to fall off. Going yellow is just the first stage. See more about Flaming Katy here.
