My husband brought this home. Not tag. I had one of these before, but can't remember what it is called or how to take care of it.

Here are a couple of pics:

Your plant is kalanchoe blossfeldiana. It will naturally bloom in late winter/early spring. Growers manipulate the amount of light at other times to cause it to bloom. They know we're much more likely to buy a blooming plant.

It comes in many colors.

Thanks juneroses and foxiekat_55 for your replies. Now I have a way to find out how to take care of it. :-) Hopefully this one will stay alive longer.
It needs to be repotted, but will wait til it's done blooming so as not to stress it out.
