Unknown succulent plant
Recently bought this succulent from a local nursery. It is about 9 inches tall and has branches off of the main stem.
There are no leaves.The bracts that run off of the main stem attach in adjacent segments. At first I thought it was a form of Senecio.

Wow, what a strange and unusual plant.
I can see this in with a grouping of softer type succulents such as Echeveria for a stunning focal point. I have no idea what it is!
When I first saw the picture, I thought it resembled Ephedra, but I'm not really familiar with that plant enough to say for certain. You could be right about it being Senecio; there are many different forms in the genus.
Hopefully someone else will recognize it and leave a comment.
