Hi everyone!
I recently bought a plant that looks like a succulent, but I can't seem to identify it properly. The owner of the store initially told me to water it every other day, but it doesn't seem to be right with this plant.
Does anyone know the name of it so I can look up proper care instructions?
Thanks in advance!

Welcome!

Its an Echeveria or relative/hybrid (succulents are not my best subject) - the care will be the same though. Watering everyday is at least 6 times a week too much. Smiling Let the soil dry about an inch down before you water.

The plant looks stretched. It might need more light.

It does look like a sedeveria, thanks for the responses!
I'll put it out in the sun more - the leaves should turn more red.

Be careful about sunburning your plant if the change is dramatic & drastic. IDK that it's suffering too much in its' current location/situation. The rosette of foliage is tight, and it's blooming.

Well, it's currently at my office next to a window, but its always in the shadow. I've read different opinions online about whether it should be in direct sunlight or not, so I just put it out in the sun for a couple hours and then put it back into indirect sunlight.
Hope it grows well :)

Don't move it in and out of outdoor (direct) sun because that may shock the plant. If you want to move your plant outside, start in bright shade, then after a couple of weeks a few hours of morning sun, and so on. These plants are really easy to shock into oblivion if you move them from an indoor location out into direct midday sun.

Indoor sun is not direct. Regular window glass filters out most of the harmful UV rays. You cannot provide too much indoor sun, so put your plant as close as possible to your sunniest window if it is going to be indoors. If it gets hours of daily sun indoors, that should be enough.
