I think that might be Kalanchoe tomentosa. It goes by the common names of Panda Plant and Pussy Ears. They are succulents that belong to the Crassulaceae family.

These plants rarely flower, although they are capable of it. They usually reproduce by offsets.

Kalanchoe is supposed to be an easy plant to bloom. I have tried to grow kalanchoe blossfeldiana a few times. I buy it in bloom and plant it. The plant does o.k. for awhile but even after a couple of years, it does not rebloom and actually starts to shrink, then I pull it out since I really don't like to keep plants that do not stay in bloom most of the time. What is the trick to getting them to rebloom?
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.

Re: Help me identify this plant-y-plant?

I just leave it alone and not really do anything to it. My kalanchoe was originally a baby from a 99 cents store plant. Only one and a half year old and pretty big. This spring, it put out probably more than fifty white flowers. Maybe you could try growing a baby instead? Mine looks like a little tree, while the store plants are spindly and look kinda like a spider.

Oh, yeah. I think they only bloom in spring. At least that's what my plant does. :D
