Hi everyone, I am new to this forum, I usually just read threads to get advice.

I bought this succulent while on vacation a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately I was in a rush and didn't get to take a picture of the sign with its name, I only remember that it said to water very scarcely!

Any help would be appreciated! I really love him, he's such a unique addition to my collection!

I agree, it is a Faucaria. Give good light and water maybe once a week. These are on the easy side for succulents. The plant looks ready for a bigger pot soon.

You are in for a treat when the plant flowers, by the way. The Faucarias here flower in the summer (unlike most other "ice plants" around here), and in great abundance. For best results give the plant strong light. My plants are in part sun or 20% shade and the flowers seem to open when the sunlight hits them. This will continue into September, more or less.
