this is a baby i got a couple days ago. the parent is about 2 1/2 feet high.
Looks like a Crassula ovata Jade. Here's a site for comparison: http://davesgarden.com/pf/go/9/index.html
the leaves aren't as thick even on the parent
on second thought it is possible. But why does mine and my friends grow more like a vine the stems are very plyable but the color of branches rather then vines?
Perhaps a Peperomia obtosifolia common name Baby Rubber Plant? Or maybe a related species? Harry
I think the first one may be closer. I was told that it will bloom.
My friend gets hers to bloom a couple times a year but says they should only bloom once.
Not to awake, Peperomia mostly alternate leaved rather than your opposite leaves. Harry
A rather etiolated Kalanchoe blosfeldiana. Joe
thanks for all the suggestions. At least there is one thing I found for sure. My friend has kept them over watered. She waters twice a week. From all the ideas I gathered that it at least is a succulent needing little water. perhaps I will reduce the water and try again when it is bigger and healthier.
sorry guys but this one is still bothering me. I spoke to the woman who gave this to me and she says the flowers are in clusters and they are red. also I have noticed that the stems when young are as green as the leaves but as they thicken and get older they get sort of a white grey crackle over the green. Maybe this new info will help a little. Also when I mentioned the ideas people gave she said jade family jogs her memory the best but not certain.
I feel quite certain that it is an etiolated Kalanchoe. Here is a link to a photo, ask your friend if this is the plant. Joe http://www.okstate.edu/ag/asnr/hortla/needham/extension/id/kalancho.html
definately Kalanchoe of some kind I have a couple possibles. I also found out hers came from her mom in texas. Thanks
