Hi,
Ive been growing my own Sempurvivum or House Leek. In amongst them there are a number of ones I can't identify. Is this a Sempurvivum or is it a weed please? It appears to have what look like suckers

Hi. I have seen those before in semp pots and wondered if they where supposed to be there, I think its a lichen! They are in lots of the pots I see at the garden centre! They look and feel like succulents but its a fungi or something similar if I'm right?
