I bought two tiny plants at Lowe's Home Center in May and planted them together in one pot, side by side. I thought that they were exactly the same but they are slightly different. Aside from growing SO FAST (they are all one clump now), they are blooming and have two different color flowers. So now I have one big baby toes plant with white AND peach flowers ~ I love this plant! And she apparently loves Huntington Beach, Ca.

Bought two clumps from Wal-Mart in late spring 2007. One promptly died, the other has done very well.
I'm in zone 8B in southeast Texas, which can get very cold in the winter, and the daggum thing sent a bloom out in January!!
It is now February, it's still outside and it's got baby "Baby Toes" coming up, and possibly yet another flower.

Looks like something that would rot at the first sign of frost, but ended up being pretty hardy for southern California- does well in full blazing sun, as well as some shade.. but IS prone to rot in pots if kept too moist. Mine flowers all summer and fall, nearly til winter. Doesn't grow much, though. A 3" clump pretty much stays a 3" clump for a year or so.... probably grows a bit, but not that I can tell.

I actually know very little about growing succulents, but I purchased several at Wal-Mart this spring just because they are so very COOL and unusual. This one is doing the best by far - it has at least two open blooms now, with about 4-6 more getting ready to go. I learned that Wmart gets their plants from Kactus Korner (www.kactus.com - they sell wholesale only,) and I can honestly say that most of them are doing just fine, but none were identified, which I found quite annoying. Cheap though! $1.19 - 2,99 each for 2-4 inch pots. Of course this will not be hardy in my zone, but I am looking forward to moving them indoors for the winter to see if I can keep them alive!
