It certainly is fuzzy
by: Jacki

What a great texture - this fuzzy succulent plant looks similar to Echeveria 'Green Velvet' except somewhat stretched out.

Is it in bright light, or just regular room brightness?

Don't eat it!

Do you know what the botanical name is? I'm not familiar with this common name - time to do some more research!

No do not eat it

Its family is called Crassulaceae the genus is Kalanchoe. The only reason why I don't think it's the chocolate soldier is because its missing the brown on the edges.

Hi Winnie,
It looks like we're all stumped, but you have a few clues to go on, and please let us know if you figure out what your fuzzy guy is.

Think I found it
by: Mary Ellen

Winnie, I think it's Kalanchoe tomentosa. Tomentosa means fuzzy, appropriately enough. The "Chocolate Soldier" variety does have delicate brown edges or dots on the leaf edges. I found a good article on Kalanchoes here - take a look! I was googling for info on how to propagate the little leafy branch ends that fell off an old one I've had for several years.

echeveria
by: jacquie

There are a number of stemmed echeveria similar to these, and the growth pattern is correct.I think it is pubescens, but look also at pulvinata frosty, harmsii and set-oliver,
