These are great succulents. They propagate easily from leaf cuttings. The leaves will fall off certain times of the year and will take root just about anywhere. Mine is the green form. They are native to Mexico. A friend gave me a cutting in Mississippi where they are hardy down to at least 15 degrees outside. These plants are not readily available and are kind of a rare find.
