This one popped up among seedlings of a different succulent species (rosularia, I believe), but was quite different and grew much more rapidly - so I put it in a small trough all by itself, where it has done nicely. But what is it?

Hi Rob. Look at Sedum pachyphytum, Graptopetalum paraguayense, or the X Graptosedum 'Francesco Baldi' It looks a lot like that group.

Rob, what succulents were growing near by? That would be a help in identifying it. Is it a hardy type succulent?

Another pic with a scale object might help also. That's cute!

The seed that this grew from came to me from a trade or exchange (I lost track of the details now, but I think it came from NARGS), so I have no clue about its origin. The size of the trough in the photo is about 4" on a side.
Thanks for the reference to the crassulaceae site - I go take a look.

Unfortunately, I don't think it's in the corner of those stunning specimens on the crassulaceae site. My plant is floppy, not firmly succulent. Going to look some more now Big Grin

@dirtdorphins & @growitall
Maybe one of these two can help us since the seed came from NARGS.

Sorry, no help from me. About the only one I know anything about is Phemeranthus.
