Can you please identify my succulent?! I've never seen another one like it. Also, does it have root rot? I dont know wether the stem is supposed to be brown or not since I don't know what kind of plant it is. Thanks!!!

This is a Crassula ovata, 'Gollum,' maybe a Skinny Fingers type...The brown on the stem is natural aging. It looks like a healthy specimen to me. Best to keep these in bright light, with a fast draining potting medium.


RE: Please identify my succulent!

I have one, too :)

You can take cutting of the branches and they root within a month or two. Pretty hardy plants.

The smaller cuttings can get sunburned though, so be careful.

I have a neighbor in my neighborhood where this plant (or a similar variety) became a pretty sizable tree.
