Lucky you!

This is an Echeveria (sorry I can't be more exact, as there are lots of different ones). They need certain care, bright light being one of the conditions that are essential.

You can find out more about how to grow Echeveria here. They do well outdoors for the summer months, as long as it never gets even close to freezing temperatures - they like it nice and warm.

Quiet and at Rest.
by: Jacky Grundling South Afrika

I am very quiet here because most of question have to with other plants and not succulents. We are in a Retirement center but I have all my plants with me praise God. The Ech. name is difficult. I don't brake my head with the names of Echeverias because everybody seems to stick a new name on. Keep up the good work under the lockdown!
