So I bought this succulent a year or so ago and it has steadily grown over time. I absolutely love the color of it and how pretty it is, however it's grown extremely sideways and I hope to be able to propagate it. However, due to the fact that I have no idea what its actual name is I can't find any articles on how to get the leafy parts of clean enough to propagate it (even though from the ones that have fallen off in the past, that seems to be how It would be done). So, does anyone know what its name is? Any help would be very appreciated!!

I'm not sure what type it is. The thing is, it doesn't look like it's supposed to -- it's very stretched due to insufficient light. It should be much more compact, and the leaves should be upright, not drooping. Most succulents need several hours of direct sun per day and they can rarely if ever get this indoors as windows generally don't let in that much. Putting them outside in summer and/or under grow lights is essential.

I could hazard a guess that it is some kind of cotyledon on account of that powder, but what Rose said.
Etiolated, stretched and deformed and whatnot due to lack of light..

For leaf propagations: Try to separate the leaves from the stem without breaking them, and place the leaves on top of new fast-draining soil in a pot with holes (don't bury any part of them). Place the pot in a bright place (where the leaves can "see" the sun for hours a day if they will be indoors) and water well when the soil is dry at depth.
