The houseplant looks like a Kalanchoe. Look at the link from Clemson for care of kalanchoe. This plant is not easy to get to rebloom.
Kalanchoe blossfediana, the most popular flowering species is usually discarded after flowering because it produces unattractive growth and does not readily flower indoors.
