Crassula?

The tiny flowers make me think it's a Crassula. Will appreciate some help with a name. Yale

A variegated Cotyledon! Very nice! That's new to me.

Tiny flowers sounds more like Crassula than Cotyledon to me. Do you have a pic of the blooms, Yale? Neat, variegated plant!

Flowers are not only small, but opening a problem. The flower is at most 3 mm long. Thanks hanzrobo, but I checked the stamens and found just five. rosemarieo is right, it must be a Crassula. Yale

It almost reminds me of Crassula platyphylla. Perhaps a variegated cultivar?

Yep. When I saw that Ro posted right after I did, I knew I was probably wrong. That leaf shape and the growth habit, though...

Let us know when you nail it down!

I think the best fit is Crassula platyphylla, as Planto suggested. The flowers don't open any more than that (in my experience), dinky little things that they are.

(Ha ha, Ryan!) :P

I found a variegated one last year that had pink edging, but the striped variegation on this one is stunning!
