This is some kind of succulent. Trim it back.

See the link. You have my fav..a kalanchoe!!!

If you clip or break carefully you can plant the clips and have a million of these. Mine flower red, but there are other colors. They are super hardy and mine grow in any condition!

A little TLC will bring this baby around! Happy growing!!!

I think your plant is watered too much and much too often and that the water stagnates in the plate which is under the pot, making far too much humidity at the level of the roots. You should put the plant in full light preferably with the light coming from above. It will stop the plant's attempts to reach the light that is what's make it grow leggy. Do not do anything and do not cut it back because with this amount of water if it is a succulent the plant is actually drowning and rotting.


Just stop watering it, give it more direct light but do not put it in a draft and do not use fertilizer because with this humidity in the soil it would damage the roots. If it is a kalanchoe, water it at the most once a month and do not leave the water in the plate under the pot. Do dry the soil rapidly you can try to put the pot on the side so that the extra water gets out of the pot because in my opinion the plant is in a quite desperate state. Good luck !
