RE: Six dollars...

But now you have two plants, at the very least (three if you cut off and grow the nubbin left of the stem). It's win-lose-win, imo. Is that a cristate Graptoveria 'Fred Ives'? Nice plant at a good price.

RE: Six dollars...

Aww, bummer. But as cactusmcharris said, you can now have 2 plants!

I bought one of these too for 6 dollars although mine rotted froma sprinkler, and all i could save was a small cutting :( lowes can have some good deals on the 6 dollar pots, a few days ago i got 4 cephalocereus which were about a foot tall each, and there was some pretty tall stetsonias (which i regret not getting)

&cactusmcharris, i think it may be a crested sedum. Or atleast thats what the tag said...

RE: Six dollars...

I'm not sure what it is but I know it's not a Fred Ives, because I have a couple (not crested) and the leaves are very different. I think Microthrix probably nailed it as being a sedum.

I thought of it as a win-lose-win at the time. After he broke it the guy asked if I still wanted it. I potted up the cutting ("breaking?") this morning, but I'm going to leave the nubbin attached to see if anything grows from it.

That was fast! They are looking good.
Do you think it will continue grow crested since it is original stem?

That is a very cool plant, I have never seen one

RE: Six dollars...

I think so, rina. Each sprout seems to be more oblong than circular.
