Seedlings of "Mexican Hat Plant"

Can anyone offer me the botanical name? Have these little seedlings under a glass cloche and they seem to be taking hold.

Kalanchoe daigremontiana ...
I hope I've spelt it correctly :)
I had one 2 feet tall but it died recently. I've got many of it's offspring :)

Thank you Hywel! I have kalanchoe blosfeldana... in a lovely red..but it's not blooming. not enough light I think. Didn't know this was a kalanchoe or that it would grow to such a size. My cousin gave me the babies from her plant which is only a foot tall.

Kalanchoe daigremontiana can grow wild here. I used to have one years ago, and it had little plants popping up everywhere.

Are these little plants from a plant's leaf?

they're confined to a little pot, at present, 3d. Will transplant to a larger pot soon.
D1, you have so many unique plants that are naturalized to your zone! you mentioned previously that ricinis communis also grows wild too! These are little off-sets, I guess. Yes they are from the plant's leaf margin. They fell into my hand already rooted! I have a feeling that they might grow on solid rock! ;-)

Yes, Ricinus communis (Castorbean tree) grows wild everywhere here. You see it a lot along the freeways.
