This is a tiny plant and quite fragile. Leaves appear in clusters
Drought Smart Plants reply:
Hi Ron, this looks a bit like a Portulaca, which are usually grown as annual plants for a dry sunny spot outdoors.
If this is what it is, then you need to have this plant in a brighter area, which will stop it from growing so tall, and keep it compact.
You'll be able to tell when it blooms, as Portulaca have really brightly colored flowers in shades of pink, red, white and yellow. They resemble tissue paper, and are crinkled.
Another option is Delosperma which has similar leaf structure, but the flowers are more daisy like.
Best of luck,
