I have if for so many years I even don't recall how many, it would be nice to have a name for it, then I can add it to the database... Smiling

I wish I knew enough to be able to help you. But it is a *lovely* plant. Have you tried the plant I.D. forum? Seems like Lynn might know, if she's around....
In the end, only kindness matters.

Science is not the answer, it is the question.

It appears to be a beautiful and happy graptopetalum or aeonium?

Bet Janet over on the plant ID forum would be able to nail it down to which of the graptopetalum.

You will be able to tell more once the blooms open up. : )
