Hi! I don't grow any succulents or cacti so I'm at a loss. I saw this at the NY Botanical Garden in their conservatory. It was in a planter with other succulents and none of them were labeled. Any idea what it could be?

Any help would be appreciated!

Its a Crassula. Maybe Crassula rupestris.

I agree It's a crassula. Check out Crassula 'Morgan's Pink' Crassula 'Morgan's Pink'
or Crassula 'Springtime' Crassula 'Springtime'

The foliage matches with C. rupestris more closely, to my eye, from that pic.

The entry in the database here could use this bloom pic, if there is a consensus:
Rosary Vine (Crassula rupestris)

Looks like my Crassula Springtime which is right now getting ready to make some blooms too.

My Crassula Springtime last April 2016

Crassula Springtime right now, with our cold overnights running longer this time, more rains too this winter, got much deeper pink, and I have repositioned it to more light, maybe that helped too in getting the darker pink hues:

I'm not sure if this helps with the ID but this plant was trailing, not upright. I have another picture that shows it but you'll have to wait until tonight for me to post it.

Ah, that sure helps..so Crassula Springtime is not it, since it is more upright.
So it maybe more Crassula rupestris then.

The leaves don't match 'Springtime' anyway.

So here's the picture I mentioned earlier.

Thumb of 2017-03-01/bxncbx/2e9d74

It's kind of hard to tell but the plant is hanging over the side of the planter. I should have taken a picture of the entire planter but I really wasn't interested in the other plants, just that one.

I'm inclined to think it's Crassula rupestris. If everyone agrees I'll add the bloom picture to the entry in the database.
