    I think it is a snail. I have had this also. I put egg shells mashed up around my flowers. If this does no work I would use some seven dust.

    spray with soapy water solution. You can spray all your plants with soapy water occasionally to help with leaf eating insects. Just a few drops of dish soap in a spray bottle of water.

    Horticultural soap and been oil work pretty well if you want more organic methods. It's an ornamental plant, seven dust works great if you don't plan on eating it

    It could be slugs, which are like snails without shells. You can use diatomaceous earth, or leave a shallow dish filled with beer near the plant. The slugs will drink it and die.

    I got one of these as a gift, and I love them. But from what I've read, they can be a little tempermental, lol. I am not a gardening expert, this is my 1st year ever having a lot of plants and flowers and I've been doing alot of research and learning as I go.
    I planted the little kalanchoe in the front. Then bought another one to plant out back. From what I've experienced, if I water them from above, meaning I get the flowers and leaves pretty wet, the leaves start to turn color and look sick. The flower fades and I dead head the flowers and cut the leaves very low and close to the base. It grows back pretty quickly. My recommendation would be to cut the dead leaves close to the base without going too far. Dead head the flowers (only if they need it, yours look pretty good) and make sure to not over water. And water at the soil and don't get the leaves wet. If you try this, let me know how it goes. This worked for me, unless I just got lucky, lol
