Hi Plantbob! Welcome to NGA.

I apologize for being Debbie Downer, but can you try another shot with a different focus or some other camera setting changed? That might be too blurry to rule out similar plants.

Sorry!

Hi and welcome, Plantbob. I'm with Rick, we need a better photo to tell you what it is.

Besides blurry, it might be some kind of a succulent, or a really neat flower . . if you can also tell us more about where you got it etc. that might also help.

Maybe this, but I can't see it clearly either:

I'm also thinking E. nodulosa

That is more clear!

Does E. nodulosa look right? There are 25 more photos at the link.

If it is, I see this in the database entry:
"Xeriscapic"

I agree that it is E. nodulosa. It is a bit stretched out perhaps from not enough sunlight (etiolated) but the color looks good. The one just above (mine) has a very bright and Xeric environment through summer and fall the wet winters. (Zone9b) It lives outside in the ground half day full sun.The Original posters plant could also be stretching to bloom which is what mine is doing now in June. Same date as OP photo. Here is the one above sending up inflows in a group setting. Sorry I can't crop on my phone.

Hello folks, original poster here . This is the same plant as above. Clearly it is leggy or elongated. Is there any way to save this plant and return it to its original stature? We have some other succulents similarly elongated.

Thanks in advance .

You can always cut off the top bit and use it to grow a new plant. Then from the remaining portion of the stem, remove all of the leaves and you can propagate new plants from those!!!

If you google 'succulent propagation techniques' I'm sure there will be sites with step by step instructions (: But, propagation has not always been successful for me, so you can always leave it elongated! Up to you!

Plantbob, Succulents are usually very easy to start from cuttings, but you will end up with the same results unless they get better light, so they aren't reaching for it.

Thanks. I live in Massachusetts so I definitely have some challenges Sad Are cuttings kept in water for rooting? As you can see, major league amateur here!

As A rule, a cutting is just stuck in the soil. Some say to dry until calloused, and some say not.Some say rooting hormone and some say not. I just stick mine in moist soil and wait.
