It's definitely Crassulaceae, probably Graptoveria or Echeveria or Graptopetalum. They all blend together in my head, and there's a lot of mis-identification online. But their care is all very similar or identical. The flowers are usually different, though (and that's the only surefire way I can tell them apart sometimes).
Keep going!

Thanks Jai. I'll have to wait for the flowers and see what they are like. First I have to root these guys. Green Grin!

Try looking at graptosedum, Graptosedum (XGraptosedum)
The colors in your plant look a lot like G. 'Vera Higgins', aka 'Bronze' or 'Alpenglow', Graptosedum (XGraptosedum 'Bronze')

Thanks Deebie. Mine looks alot like 'Vera Higgins' or even the XGraptosedum 'California Sunset' . I got a bunch of them planted in soil today. Smiling I'll root some of them in water just to compare since I have a whole box of these cuttings. Green Grin!

Not to dispute anybody, but I have a couple cuttings of Graptosedum "Alpenglow" and they look different from this one.

I asked for them because of the red-pink-gold-green color and the fact that they really did appear to glow.

It is 100% possible that they are still the same plants (or that one or both of us have something else entirely) because growing conditions can affect the color, spacing, and shape of the leaves in rather profound ways.
Shrug!
Keep going!

Jai I think it looks more like XGraptosedum 'California Sunset'. I'll wait til it roots and grows more. Smiling

I Google Imaged that variety and got pictures from all sorts of websites (reliable and unreliable) showing plants in purples, reds, greens, and oranges. This is how it goes. I think we should call them Echograptopachywhatevers.
Keep going!
