I bought this rarity in a 2" pot several years ago for way too much money (so I assume it's fairly rare). Thought it would spread, but it's taken half a decade to spread this much. Blippy sedum-esque leaves are tipped with Barbie pink! SLOW GROWER! It recently bloomed and set seed (also tiny). There are a couple of stems remaining in the picture in case they're any help. Of course, the tag is long gone.

Any collectors out there who have a clue? Thanks!Thumb of 2012-09-17/seedforbrains/69fdde

It looks like it could be one of the Anacampseros: http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Anacampseros+&sub...
See if any of these match your plant. The bud it is showing right now does not look like a sedum bloom.

It does look like an Anacampseros. I'll have to Google the various species to pin it down. Definitely not a sedum. The growth pattern is somewhat disorganized rather than spiraled.

Thanks so much giving me a starting point. Let me know if you'd like some seeds. (Judging from how fast the plant grows, you might have seedlings in about a decade.)
