Plant ID and Help!
No idea what this plant is, but since moving a few months ago, he’s gotten these weird purple-y brown edges, growing weird, and losing a lot of leaves. Can anyone ID and tell me what he needs? I only water when he’s dried out. He’s in a bright window so it might just be too much sun?

    Paris Lalicata Pei is right this is a beautiful succulent! So as much bright indirect light to full sun will make this plant super happy, and allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. The purply edges is natural characteristic the succulent will display so I wouldn't be concerned about those! If you allow the soil to dry out between waterings the yellowing could be a sign of either not enough light, or just the plant acclimating into it's new environment. During that process its perfectly natural for plants to shed leaves!

      Pei oh yes, the purple edge is normal! It's a change of color due to the high light (which is good becuase Kalencho likes bright direct sun). It's super happy :)

    Pei It's a Kalencho succulent :) I have one and I love it.

    Succulents, in general, need plenty of sunlight (direct if possible). And yes, you are doing it right – only water when it's completely dry out. I also pay attention to the leaves, it will wrinkle when it's thirsty. Quite fun :)
