Thanks Stefan. I saw tetragona, which has bigger leaves and the stems are upright.

My plant has smaller leaves, the stems are almost trailing.

I will take a better photo during the day.

Hello I do have a Crassula Sarcocaulis they look very similar but I thought yours had fatter leaves or maybe it's just me. Also to help with the ID could you tell us if it has flowered and if so what colour and shape has it been.

Hi Oilagave, thank you very much for the reply.

My plant has not flowered since I got it 2-3 years ago. The birds are busy pruning any new growth. It was also in normal potting soil, which I have just replaced with succulent mix. Are there any ways that I can encourage blooming?

Well as you probably know if you want to encourage any flower you may want to add fertilizer but if the birds are not getting along with it and picking of the new growth obviously it wouldn't grow new flowers as it's being constantly pruned I'd look into protecting it from the birds as a first option then if it flowers I mean it should it's relatively easy to grow but if it doesn't flower then think about the fertilizer.
