Kalanchoe marnieriana

Paddle and Stem

Paddle and Stem

I purchased this from a local market and I lost the name. I re planted it in a new container and I think I'm making it really unhappy.
This plant is paddle like with long woodish stems.

The leaves are paddle like. A sea green color, with a pinkish/brown hue on the edges. About the size of a silver dollar, mostly round with a small pinch at the tip. They grow tiny babies at those tips.

The stem is soft where the paddles grow, but they are falling off at the base of the stems. Where they fall off the stem turns more wood like, not the soft and supple nature of the top.

Ahh, baby plants on the tips of the leaves

That character trait is a sure sign that this is some kind of Kalanchoe. There are very few (if any) other genera of plants that have this characteristic.

This appears to be Kalanchoe marnieriana

Although I've never seen this specific plant before, it will require similar care; bright light (even full sun outside) and the occasional deep watering. Let it dry out almost completely between times.

This is it!

That is definitely the plant! Nice!
Now maybe I can try to figure out what to do about the stems.

I just don't think it's supposed to fall apart like this at the base.

Thank you so much for your help! Fast too!
