The picture is rather blurry, but it appears to be Oscularia deltoides, Pink Iceplant. Sometimes it's seen listed in the trade as Lampranthus deltoides. Does your plant have teeth on the edges?

Hi seedmoney does this help?

Yep, that's it. I would give it more light and keep it on the drier side. I see you're in Zone 2b--is that like Siberia?

Thank you seemoney!! I will repot this thingy and put it by itself in a dryer, lighted area place. I had to laugh, is Siberia zone 2b as well? LOL..I am actually in Northern, Saskatchewan, Canada. Our winters get to about -45 Celsius for 8 months a year. Growing season starts in the end of May and goes to august..sometimes u can have plants still growing by september but not often. It's a hell hole living here for plant fanatics like me. I have all my plants in the house, taking over my living room!!! Oh, and 2 sets of metal hallides that I use all year round even in the summer..It's a horrible place to live..but hey..it's home.

Another from the Great White North!

Folks, it's as Dane says for Northern Sask. - we here in the BC Southern Interior speak of their winters (and general weather) with reverence (and joy that we're not there). If you want to grow succulent plants, there are more difficult places, but not many.
