I have had this plant for years (same size & colors) in my sunny kitchen window. It doesn't flower either. It was from my Grandmother's plant she got in the 1930's. Any idea what it is?

Reminds me of Anacampseros. A. arachnoides or A. lanciolata maybe.

thank you. I wasn't sure due to the thinned out stems and lack of flowering while it's in the sun all morning/early afternoon. maybe not enough sun still to flower & possibly needs repotting for healthier/thicker growing...?

It doesn't need a bigger pot but fresh soil (cactus mix with added perlite) and more sun wouldn't hurt it any. I really like all that furriness its got going for it. Kind of like cuddling a cat that doesn't bite. Smiling

I think it's fantastic. Love the pot it's in too. Someone here, or in the succulent forum, should be able to nail down the correct ID for you.

It looks a lot like my Sand Rose (Anacampseros rufescens).
