What Is This Houseplant?

I just got a new job and the office has a plant. It was in pretty sorry shape when I found it, but after watering it for a few days it is coming back to life. Anyone know what it is/any care or feeding tips?

I believe it is a Kalanchoe..

There are many varieties of Kalanchoe plants and many of them do not even resemble each other.

Here are a few photos that may answer your question:

The last link is to Wikihow that gives instructions on how to care for this plant:

I agree with cybergrannie, but it's hard to tell from your photograph. Kalanchoes are succulents with thick leaves. If that's the case, you have your answer.

The plant may also be Swedish Ivy (thinner leaves, tends to vine).

The former blooms, the latter not so much.

It looks like a Kalanchoe which is a succulent. If you transplant it, use cacti soil. Kalanchoes do fine in normal household conditions, but they need to be kept away from drafts. Keep your kalanchoe above 50°F.
