Ok so I'm kinda of into spit rock plants so I was at Home Depot and I saw a kinda different looking one that had like diamond leaves instead of circles I know it's in the Genus Pleiospilos but I know it's not nelii like the label suggests so does anyone know what type of spit rock this is?

I always appreciate the backup, Sue!

Here is my unidentified Pleiospilos (similar) which has lived several years by a sunny SW facing windowsill. Flowers are yellow and smell like piƱa colada. Smiling

@Mrcreepercraft48 Welcome to NGA Your plant looks a lot like Pleiospilos simulans. Give this link a look.

It is not P. simulans because the leaves do not have the rubbery, deflated texture characteristic of that species. For what it's worth, that particular site is replete with wrong and invented names for plants.
