thx, i just looked that up and it doesn't seem to match. i actually have the one you mentioned, it has a dusty powder, right? i got some from my mom. this one has none at all. when i first saw it, i thought it was a type of jade.

First I was reminded of Kalanchoe synsepala, haha, but that certainly is not it! Cotyledon ID is totally on-point.

Yes, hanzrobo! That is exactly what I have. I looked up some images and this is exactly what the plant looks like.

I'm so excited! Can't wait to plant it. :)
