Sedum rubrotinctum R. T. Clausen, Cact. Succ. J. (Los Angeles) 20:82. 1948 ;

Sedum rubrotinctum or Sedum × rubrotinctum, and commonly known as the Jelly Bean Plant, or Pork and Beans. It is a species of Sedum from the Crassulaceae family of plants.

Nicknamed for its short leaves that resemble jelly beans, especially when taking on a protective hue.[1] The plant was named officially as a distinct species in 1948. It is a succulent plant originating in Mexico.[2]
The leaves of the Sedum rubrotinctum plant change colour from green to red during the summer months as a protective adaptation[1][3] They sprout bright yellow flowers from between the leaves in mid-spring.[1]
It has also been classified as a hybrid plant [4] — of Sedum pachyphyllum × Sedum stahlii — named Sedum × rubrotinctum.
Sedum rubrotinctum is cultivated as an ornamental plant, for planting in gardens and as potted plants.
It is grown very easily and tolerates all types of soil except for those that are poorly drained. It grows very well in summer, can take variations in climate, although it is not frost-tolerant.
New plants may be grown from leaves (or beans) that drop off or are separated from the stem and laid on the soil.Sedum rubrotinctum is poisonous and may cause irritation when ingested or touched.[1]

Id please.

Looks sort of like Sedum, but I’m not sure or what species.

Sedum rubrotinctum ‘Pork and Beans’ or Sedum rubrotinctum ‘Aurora’. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference

nice to see something new

Seems its allowed to grow without much interference, though obviously in a human habitat, seems there is some cemented spot…

how long do you think it took this plant to branch this way and flower?

…, this was grown in our house in Srinagar, Kashmir. We visit this place for few weeks. My bhabi grows them, now she also comes to Delhi/ Bangalore for 6-8 months, so mostly these plants survive of their own.
