Does anyone recognizes this plant I have for very many years, I guess around 20 years?
Lynn has suggested Graptopetalum or Aeonium for the genus in the Cactus and Succulent forum.
It soon is going to bloom, as I remember the flowers are white, it is put in front of a window to the street side of a basement room I only use for dressing room and storage, I took it outside to the garden to give it a bath and clean-up.

Wow Myriam, you have looked after that one well!

Could it be an Echeveria? It's one I remember a lot of people seemed to have as a house plant years ago.

Thank you Janet! The plant actually gets very little care, I can only see it myself when I go out the door on the street side as the window is screened for privacy on the inside..It is in company of other succulents I also need an ID for.
Echeveria imbricata really looks like it, especially on this picture:
http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?q=Echeveria+imbricata&um=1&hl...

I said that I thought the flowers on mine where white, but they could well be like on that second picture with flowers..

Some of the pictures of Echeveria secunda var.glauca look very close too, but I think the leaves on mine are more thick like on Echeveria imbricata.

Thanks a lot for the links, they will be useful for my other succulents.. Thumbs up

I thought Echeveria imbricata was a good match too, lack of sun will make it paler. You could compare the flowers once opened, whichever it's likely to be either the species or a named cultivar.

They soon are going to flower, I think in a couple of days..but it is indeed likely the species or a cultivar!
