I got this succulent as a gift recently (in one of those tiny plastic pots). I love its color, but can't figure out what it is. Its leaves are longer than most, and it can take full sun - that's no small feat, here. Can you help?
Hi Haveda, this looks like an Echeveria, but it's not one I'm familiar with. I agree with you about the color, that's fabulous. Now having second thoughts; I am just wondering if that is correct, looking at the arrangement of the leaves - they almost look like they grow opposite each other in pairs, unlike Echeveria which grow in a whorl.
Other possibilities are Crassula, which does the opposite leaf arrangement, or even Cotyledon with a similar growth habit.
Crassula capitella, the Campfire jade on this page looks a lot like it in leaf shape, not so much in color.
Hope that helps get you started, anyway.
