Hi! I bought this succulent yesterday from a florist who got it in a 'succulent bulk package' and had no idea what it was. Since then, I've tried google, a couple plant identification apps, and the help of green-fingered family and friends, and nobody could get close to telling me what it is. Anyone got an idea of what it could be? I don't want to take care of it incorrectly.

(Alien included as a current theory of where it's come from.)

Adromischus, but I'm not sure how the species are differentiated:

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

Aha, thank you! I went on a dive through the adromischus link, and google image searching eventually led me to the 'schuldtianus' species, which I'd say looks pretty close to what I have? Close enough to be certain adromischus is the right genus, anyway. Thanks so much for sending me down the right path!
