Hello! I have not been able to identify this succulent. It's very easy to propagate from its leaves. I thought it was an echeveria stretching, but the plant has never stayed in rosette form, but rather seems to grow in this creeping/spreading fashion, even when it first sprouts out from an old leaf. Really love this little guy; he's been with me for a long time. Please help me identify. Thank you!!

Look at the Graptopetalum sp. at the bottom right of this site ..

The stems and leaves seem to match, it's upright but light levels can effect some plants.

It looks etiolated, whatever it is. If possible to put it in more sun, it might look more like it's supposed to. It's cute though!!

It does look to be a Graptopetalum, possibly '


edited to say: Well, after looking more closely at the leaves it's probably not 'Ghosty'. :)
