Thumb of 2014-04-13/jojoe/3e47b6 Thumb of 2014-04-13/jojoe/204f19 Thumb of 2014-04-13/jojoe/de5ada

You can see in all the pictures a leaf has been knocked off & has rooted very well.I have it propped up with the stick because it was leaning to one side really bad.It seems to have maybe had leaves knocked off on that side??
I figure re-potting it would be a good place to start once i find out what it is and what to pot it in.

Thanks for any help!! Smiling

Yes, I'd say that's it. I have been lousy at IDs lately. Must be my old brain.

You are most welcome Jojoe. I tip my hat to you. Glad to help.

I hear you on that Tee... It can be so frustrating to Know that you Know the plant, you just can't get the brain to index it... Smiling I tell my husband that there is nothing wrong with my memory, it is just my "rolodex" that is slipping. Whistling

Glad to hear my rolodex isn't the only one that gets stuck!! Rolling on the floor laughing :hurray:

What's really funny is i just looked at this plant not 2 weeks ago when i bought about 9 new plants.It was one of those i put in my buggy & then took it out when i seen something else.then decided i needed both.Then the hubby walked up & said geez thought you were just going to get a couple semp's, i count 5 semp's & what is that thing & 4 other plants. When did a couple turn into 10??? Hilarious! Whistling

So the 'key lime pie' got put back and he still doesn't know why i needed 2 jovibarba heuffelii,1 sedum,4 semp's,1 crassula perfora 'string of buttons' and a Lampranthus 'vygie'.

Oh and the plant he said what is that thing was my semp 'oddity'. After all that and i knew the plant looked familiar but had no clue. In my own defense most are compact and this one is kind of leggy.

I have asked questions about this plant on the cactus/succulent forum,if anyone can help with it's care i will be greatful!!

My rolodex was always a bit screwed up from ADD, but now I have the old senior brain on top of that. It's no fun!
