whitish succulent with broad flatish leaves
(Prescott Valley, AZ, USA)
I just got this succulent at the grocery store. It looks like it has variegated coloring. It is next to a small jade plant (I believe that one is a Crosby's Compact Jade) for size comparison.
The mystery succulent is nearly white and has some green and pink in it.
I don't think it's a jade because the new leaves come out in a swirl instead of in pairs like the jades do. I am keeping it indoors but just bought it today. I was told it was grown in a hot-house.
The leaves are kind of brittle and break easily like a christmas cactus. They are not flexible like a jade. The edges of the leaves are uneven and not smooth.
I mainly want to know what the species is and if it needs direct sunlight or indirect.
Thanks so much for your help!
JennniferHi Jennifer, I was leaning towards some kind of variegated Crassula, but Trina has offered some other options in the comments.
