    Looks great! Pairs of opposite leaves clearly visible now negates Echeveria, Sedum, Grapto-whatevers...

    As long as it keeps growing, the mystery will eventually be solved with blooms. It took 4 yrs to ID one of my plants.

    Still waiting for an ID. I've sent photos of the flowers to the nursery lady. Mine look very pathetic, but fingers crossed she can give me a name soon. FLOWER.jpg FLOWER 3.jpg

    IDENTIFIED??? http://www.crassulaceae.ch/de/artikel?akID=490&aaID=2&aiID=C&aID=3035
    Mine looks a little different, but this is the closest anyone has come to putting a name to it :)

    "Known in Australia as Lenophyllum 'Chocolate'. However the rosettes as well as the inflorescences indicate without any doubt that this plant is not a Lenophyllum species. It is a hybrid with another genus. The spreading petals and the outcurved filaments suggest Graptopetalum."
