This plant looks like a jade plant, leaves fall off, have 'air roots' I remember there was some warning that said it was poison.

I've never heard of this being poison...
by: Jacki

but then, generally I don't recommend eating any succulent plants.

This looks like Echeveria haagai tolimanensis in form and colour, perhaps a little drawn due to lack of light.

Easy to care for, only requiring a good drink once a month or so, and little to no fertilizer. Its main requirements are pruning when it gets too tall, and bright light and warm conditions.

Stranger than fiction !

VERY cool looking plant - it looks like it should be cast in a Star Wars movie or something.
I checked the link you provided Jacki and it does look like the Echeveria you mentioned although it's easy to see why it would be compared to a jade.

The echeveria mentioned
by: David Kohn

Thanks for all your help folks. the Echeveria grows up tall. This creature snakes around,never gets tall. So naturally I just don't know.

I just got this yesterday
by: Patricia

I've been searching the exact type of my new baby. Ok just got my first succulent yesterday. Can you tell me something about this specific plant? Other than watering and fertilizer. I need to transfer it to a new planter. Two of it's leaves broke off while taking home. Though I have planted them. I'm so worried.
