Bought this plant from Home Depo about a month ago. It's doing well - just need to know what kind of succulent it is! Confused Thumb of 2013-04-30/prissa/113d63

It could be a Graptoveria, which is a hybrid crosses between Graptopetalum and Echeveria. Or it could be a Graptosedum, a Graptopetalum and Sedum hybrid cross. Can you get more pictures in the outdoor lighting?

It was overcast yesterday, but today it's nice. I hope this pic helps!Thumb of 2013-05-03/prissa/319a0e




My plant looks very similar to the crassulaceae graptoveria. Could this be what it is?

crassulaceae is the family name for all sedum, echeveria, crassula, aeonium, graptoveria etc. That image is actually x Graptoveria amethorum, described as "One of the more delicate Graptoveria hybrids, This plant is slow growing and has moderate watering needs." https://sites.google.com/site/succulentcity/crassulaceae-gra...

I am leaning toward a Graptosedum hybrid because of the thick rounded leaves but still not sure. Shrug!
