Hello all,

I just picked up this beautiful succulent from my local nursery today. I'm pretty sure it's of the Echiveria family, but am not entirely sure. Can any of you ID this plant for me please?

Thank you!

.....just to explain some things
1. There is no echeveria family, its a genus. The real name is crassulacae family, where crasula is also genus, for which the family is named
2.This is a crassulla capitella

The family and genus are spelled like this:

Crassulaceae
Crassula

Be prepared for a rush of small flowers at the top of the stem in the near future, which may attract a lot of bugs (some of whom are not there to pollinate) and try to provide strong light for the best form and color.
