I.D. help needed, please
I purchased this succulent "garden" at a Lowe's in southern CT a week ago --- mainly because I just fell in love with the plant in the front of the pot. However, I'm having trouble identifying it and would appreciate any information so that I can figure out what will eventually happen to this plant.
The last time I did this (buy an impulse purchase because I fell in love with the shape and texture of an unknown cactus), I ended up with a spiny plant that grew to 4 feet in about 4 years. Did I go down that same, sad path again?
Here's the "garden" --- the plant is the one in front with the spike/flower(?) growing from between some leaves.
A closer shot
Here's a closeup of the "leaves". I love both their colors and textures. Are they called "leaves" or is there another term for them?
The end of the shoot --- What is this?
Thanks so much for any help.
