    What's this cute buddy's name ?

    Hi everyone,

    Lately I received this little succulent from a friend. I love it ! But the thing is, I don't know what it is, and I would like to. Could you please help me to identify it ?



    Thanks a lot : )

    That's known as a stone plant. I used to have one, but a squirrel ate it. Seriously, keep it away from squirrels.

    I believe that is a Titanopsis sp. I'm not too sure how to keep it from chasing squirrels though. Perhaps a tether?

    I hope you're joking, the squirrel ate the plant not the other way around. I'm lucky enough to have a big, grid wire cage to keep my plants in now.

    I keep my plants firmly rooted in pots, it stops them jumping up after the birds. Your caging seems a good idea too

    Either that or perhaps an Aloinopsis. (Might not be a species in either event. Hybrids are also possibilities.

    Thank you ! Based on google image, I'd say it looks a lot like a titanopsis calcarea. Anyway, even if it's not exactly that, it will help me to take a good care of it : )

    fredg - Your jokes made my day, thanks to you too : D
