Mystery Succulent
by: Jacki

This is possibly Echeveria macrophylla, judging from the size, but in the picture the leaves almost look mottled, which makes me think it may be a member of the Cotyledon or Crassula. Anyone?

Hi, you have a Kalanchoe thrysiflora or 'flapjacks'.

You're Right

Thanks, Surroundx, I just saw another picture of this plant somewhere on the web, but the colours threw me off - exactly the same form but with a red tinge to them.

For a gorgeous way to combine this succulent plant with other forms and colours see this page - Gorgeous Succulent Planter.

Not a Kalanchoe
by: Paula

It seems to me to be a Cotyledon Orbiculata. The leaf structure is not rosette on the plant in the photo.

I just received one of these as a gift. I can't wait until it flowers!

Its definitely K. thryrsiflora!
by: Surroundx

Hi Paula, C. orbiculata is a powdery silver, whereas the succulent in the photo is clearly reddish. The structure of C. orbiculata is very different also.
