It's labeled as a echeveria crassula ...
...But isn't that two different succulent families? It said that it is from South Africa, but that is all that it gave me.
I got it from Wal-Mart for a $1 (yay!!!) and the pictures are two days after I got it.
The bottom 'leaves' are striped (reminds me of a tiger) with the purplish coloring, but as it goes up, the stripes disappear and the green becomes a little lighter. And they also look a little skinnier.
Then it goes into the stems, weed like things.
Can you tell what it is and how to care for it please? And is it easy to replant and reproduce? Thanks!

Hi Samantha - yes, you're right, those are two different things - they're just covering all their bases. Crassulaceae is a family of plants that contain many other genera; Echeveria, Sedum, Sempervivum, Crassula and many other succulent plants are contained within this family.
Your plant is a mystery - several other people have asked about the same one, but so far, we've come up empty on the name although one person commented that it's Kalanchoe humilis, which I have yet to find any information on. It's a fabulous looking plant, enjoy!
