Tesco Plant ID

Hello - a long shot. 

2018 - I bought one of those miniature £3 plants Tesco sell in cute little pots. It flowered that year with delicate little white flowers, then continued growing.

2019 - the first photo I can find, after the flowers had gone and when it started to grow towards the light and so I decided to repot it.

2020 - the three subsiquent pictures taken today.

Being from Tesco they didn't give it a proper name but I'm wondering if anyone knows what they usually sell / what it might be?

    I reckon that is Kalanchoe Burnett.liz,  what colour were the flowers?  Most are a kind of orange.  Nice plant anyway  :)

    It is a Kalanchoe of some kind.
    To me it does not look like the typical 'supermarket' Kalanchoes (Kalanchoe blossfeldiana).The leaves on those are usually a bit more glossy,larger and darker.
    I may of course be wrong!

    Hi @Burnett.liz  and welcome to the forum. 😊 

    I think that’s a rather leggy kalanchoe.

    Hello @Burnett.liz    Everyone has given your plant a name.  I have 2 of these outside now as it's summer,  but if you look after it and bring it inside during the winter, it will give you more flowers and pleasure.
    A good hoeing is worth two waterings.

  • Thank you all. Do you know if I should be cutting the 'leggyness' back /down?
