Hello Karen53harrisgmai Welcome!

To me your plant looks like a sempervivum that is getting ready to bloom. Can you take a photo of whole plant, a bit further away?

If it is a sempervivum, the plant is on a fade away phase, it will bloom but after that the plant will die. Just the natural cycle of the plant. Sometimes it may still make pups at the base of the plant or if none, you can still try and harvest the seeds after it blooms.

Yes, it's going to bloom. After it does, the mother will die and the babies will take over.

roatangardener, Welcome!
Yes, each plant should have it's own thread. Keeps things from getting confused. Even if you have two or three plants you need an Id on, each one should have it's own thread.
Just go to the Plant ID forum, then go all the way to the bottom and you will see Start a new thread.

Thanks for the photo Karen. Yup, it definitely is some type of sempervivum, so mommy plant will bloom and slowly fade away later. I see you have new ones already at the base, so it will continue on. Typically it takes around 3 or 4 years for the plant to start blooming or sometimes if location is too hot and dry, it also triggers bolting. They are alpine succulents that love cooler but not soggy conditions. A few can tolerate the heat. I will just enjoy the bloom show as it goes. And as I have mentioned earlier, you can try and harvest the seeds when bloom dies.
