plant ID please

Can anyone ID this plant for me? If you look on the edge there is a small four leaf growing off of the tip, and it has a few hairs underneath, like a cactus, only not sharp.

I think that might be Kalanchoe laetivirens 'Big Momma'.

Could the "hairs" be rootlets from the little plantlets? :)

It does look like a Kalanchoe. Mine is called Mother-of-Thousands plant (Bryophyllum daigremontianum), and it looked very similar when it was younger. Then again i am no expert.

Calandiva is a Kalanchoe, and they all produce baby plants along the edges of the leaves. Some species just do so more profusely than others, hence common names such as "Mother of thousands". :)
