Hello,
I purchased this plant in Sydney, Australia and after countless searches I cannot work out what it is. It kind of looks like a bamboo but not exactly and the salesperson told me it is a succulent. Help would be greatly appreciated. I have attached a couple of photos.
Thank you in anticipation.

It looks like Devil's Backbone (Euphorbia tithymaloides) to me also.

Tofi, what are those heart plants? They look like Kleinia. Confused

@DaisyI those are braided Sansevieria cylindrica leaves cuttings, the heart form sometimes popular near valentine's day, along with other heart form plants such as hoya kerrii...

I saw my first in person Sansevieria cylindrica last week at my local favorite nursery (Not lowe's or Home Depot Smiling ). There were 4 leaves coming out of an 8 inch pot priced at $100 per pot. Whew!

Happy to suggest. I also think it's a 'Nana' variety of that species.
