    Looks like a typical Crassula argentia to me.

    Thanks Tamlin. Its gotten alot bigger since the post, and I put it outside to get some sun and cooked some leaves. Its filling back out though. what is the idea sun for them? I have had it out in the GH and recently had it inside for a while thats why I wanted it to get some sun, but didn't intend to cook the thing. LOL Its pulling through though.

    With any plant you have to go slow when putting them outside, esp. true for the delicate CP's. Like you, they need to 'tan'. Sunlight will bring out the anthocyanins and other pigments that will protect the chloroplasts which are close to the surface of the leaves. To much too soon and the plant will be damaged from sunburn, as you have learned the hard way. This plant like all succulents, cacti and most CP wants all the sun you can give once it is hardened up.
