This looks like a mother-of-thousands plant, which is of the Kalanchoe genus. They are generally hardy in zones 9-11, so you would need to grow it in a container to over winter indoors.

This plant needs good drainage and is best potted in a commercial cactus soil mix, though if using standard potting soil, sand can be added. Locate the plant in bright, but indirect, light for several hours per day. It will benefit from spending the summer outside, just make sure to introduce it to the outside atmosphere gradually and begin their outdoor stay with limited morning sun. Too much direct sunlight may cause leaves to become sunburned. Remember to move the plant back inside before outdoor temperatures drop to the 40 degree F. range.
