Last fall I bought a bag of little succulent/sedum cuttings. This was one of them that has grown a lot inside over the winter. The largest leaves are about 1" long and 1/2" wide. They are maybe 1/8" thick. Any ideas?

To me, it looks like Trailing Jade (Senecio jacobsenii).

I went out and took a photo of my plant so you can see what it will look like. The leaves turn a purple color in high light and it has a pretty little flower:

lol. Sometimes I just like the old names better. Who says you can't teach old dogs new tricks, er, names. I eventually get used to them. Hilarious!

LOL, I have trouble getting used to new names. When I take a photo of a plant I go through the folders on my laptop to add the photo and I get frustrated because usually I can't find it under the "original" name ... I can never seem to remember the "new" name and I'm lazy and don't want to scroll through hundreds of folders even though they are in alphabetical order! *Blush* So, now I have a folder named Senecio and there are a few folders within the main folder and the plant above is listed there as S. jacobsenii with K. petraea in parentheses.

It's highly unlikely the plant in question is a Trailing Jade.

--- Leaves of the plant in question are arranged opposite
--- Leaves of Trailing Jade are arranged alternate

@Leftwood

Rick: Thanks so much for pointing that out! Hopefully someone more familiar with succulents will pop in and be able to identity the plant in question.

You can also post it in the Cacti and Succulents forum.

I posted over on the cactus and succulent forum with a link back here so maybe those who grow succulents will be able to help!

I grow a lot of succulents but apparently was wrong about the ID of this one. *Blush*

Perhaps a peperomia? I'll be anxious to see what it is.

LOL Tee ... I am not good at all comparing photo's and sometimes forget to click to enlarge a photo and most always forget to look closely at leaf arrangement. *Blush*

Thumbs up Funny, I do the same thing. Duh, Tee, enlarge the photo and even use zoom. What a concept. There's nothing like eye-balling it, though. Growing conditions can make such a difference.
