It's Kalanchoe thyrsiflora ... it will grow big in time, but you can cut it down when it does, and plant the cuttings :o)

Thanks Hywel... will repot this weekend... and by cutting it you mean plucking out the think leaves right..? Thats going to be heart wrenching..!

No I don't mean cut the leaves off. I mean cut the branches, ... make them shorter.
Then you can plant them, with the leaves still on :o)

You can just cut it shorter, and plant the bit you cut off. Then the old bit will grow branches.
