Would appreciate a confirmation or denial of name of succulent I picked up at a bbs and am nursing back to health. Thanks!
Here is a link that might be useful: Is this Pachyphytum oviferum?
Here is a picture of Pachyphytum oviferum and Graptopetalum amethystinum side by side for a comparison.
I don't think so... I think that plant is Pachyphytum amethystinum... oviferum has bluer and rounder leaves even than your plant.
It is Graptopetalum amethystinum. Izrddr is correct that Pachyphytum oviferum has bluer and rounder leaves. However, the photo in his/her post is not P. oviferum either; it looks like Pachyphytum bracteosum.
Thanks lzrddr and spapa for pointing me in the right direction.I imagine I will have to wait for blooms for a positive id.
I find it maddening differentiating Graptopetalum amethystinum and Pachyphytum amethystinum.regards, seedmoney
Here's another shot of my plant (acquired as P oviferum)
and still another
Thanks, birdguide--very helpful picture.Would you happen to have a Pachyphytum amethystinum you could contrast side by side with the Graptopetalum amethystinum?
I don't think there is an amethystinum sp. in the Pachyphytum genus. I believe Graptopetalum amethystinum is sometimes mistakenly referred to as P. Amethystinum. Check the link below.
Sorry. Here's the link to the pachyphytum page I was referring to.
