Hi! I adopted this neglected succulent from a friend. I was wondering what it was and also what is wrong with it. It's covered in what looks like salt. I was afraid of mealy bugs, so I sprayed a little with alcohol, and it crusted on that spot - so it seems to be coming from the plant! Any help would be appreciated Smiling

Can you leave it outside in the rain for a few hours when the time is right (ie. when the soil is dry or near dry)? That could clean up the situation considerably and help reveal where the stuff is coming from.

Looks like Sedum furfuraceum, which is naturally kind of crusty looking.
