So I got this little guy a 9 months ago in some grocery store clearance bin. It didn't have a name, ID, or care instructions, but it's been growing fine in my window (east facing--I live in Indiana, USA) with little watering (1 per week). The leaves are thick and stiff, so I treated it like I treated my succulents (RIP), which fared worse, ironically. The largest leaves are 1.25 inches. It is 3.5 tall and 5 inches in diameter. Please help me ID it so I can make sure it stays healthy and because I'd like to combine it with some other plants of similar care requirements. Thanks!

Thanks so much! That answer is honestly good enough for me. Now I can stop wondering if I'm taking care of it correctly!

Hi & welcome! Compare to P. orba. The database here only has an entry for variegated for some reason.
