Appears to be Graptopetalum paraguayense, a little tricky to see in the pic though.

No, sorry, I disagree, the rosette shape's doesn't look right for that & these leaves seem too fat for that too.

Don't know what is IS though, Grapto, Pachy, Sedum??

I agree the rosettes look unusual but my plant's leaves have a shape similar to this when they are new; for example when one rosette lost many of its lower and outer leaves the center resembled this. The color is right with the dense blue powder in the center and warmer colors towards the edges, and the leaves have a point to them which does not occur with the pachys. I would think that Graptopetalum paraguayense is at least a parent of this plant.

This is what I'm thinking your plant looks like (these are young Graptopetalum paraguayense plants):

I agree a Grapto- or Sedum in the mix, but seriously doubt plants in either pic above are Graptopetalum paraguayense. Hard to say. Blooms might help with its ID.

This is what the parent of those plants looks like:
I bought it as G. paraguayense but perhaps I was mislead. Blooms would be the definitive identifier.

Spapa, has this ever bloomed for you? Your parent plant looks like xGraptosedum 'Ghosty', which has yellow blooms. It is often mistaken for Graptopetalum paraguayense (which has white blooms). Also has the common name of Ghost Plant, which doesn't help in the confusion.

Rosemariero6, hasn't bloomed for me yet, but I think you are right. That explains my confusion, thank you for clarifying! The label actually said "Graptopetalum paraguayense/Ghosty", which I took to mean that Ghosty was another name for G. paraguayense; now I can see that they are actually two different plants. Anyways, I think the original poster may have xGraptosedum 'Ghosty' :)
