|A friend gave me the central plant in this picture a few months ago and told me it was a 'Paw Cactus'.|
Does anyone know a better name?

|Just a wild guess here:|
Bear Paws (Cotyledon tomentosa subsp. ladismithiensis)

|Thank you Dave, Tee, and Calin.|
After researching from Calin's lead I discover that it is in fact Aloinopsis malherbei!

|And look at that, you uploaded it to the database and it's now become a clickable link in your first post! Dave's new cool feature!|

|They are true xerophytes!|
They have a short root system of very succulent roots...
I don't water mine if the leaves are turgid!
Yours looks like it would like some sun...I kinna have the same look myself this winter!
Please tree mail me for trades, I'm ALWAYS actively looking for more new plants, and love to trade!

|Mine is growing in pure oyster shell so far and existing without rot. They hate full Sun here in Florida ( I almost lost it in August) and need to be kept somewhat shaded in the middle of the day. Its actually doing well!|
