Pizzazz plant puzzler

I purchased this plant at a drugstore last spring and have it in the window of my home decor shop. Customers ask what it is -- and I would like to know, also. Thanks!!

Hi Candace, I'm thinking that this is a very stretched specimen of Calandrinia, which are actually not an indoor house plant. They grow in hot dry conditions in very bright light, so they will show this type of stretched out growth if they don't have enough light. Just think if you could get it to bloom!

You can see more here on Dave's Garden Website: Calandrinia grandiflorum and Calandrinia spectabilis - compare them to your plant and see if this is it.

Happy Succulent Growing!
