Kindly help with identification of this cultivated species of Cotyledon.
Place: Hamirpur

most likely crasssula dubia

Crassula dubia is now correctly known as Crassula cotyledonis, but then it raises question about how to differentiate it from Kalanchoe thyrsiflora

Please see my post and link there in


thank you
many shops even at bot gardens continue to call them crassula dubia… nice to know the latest

Without flower it is impossible to select one between the two suggested id(s). Yet I would select K. thyrsiflora Harv., for its emarginate leaf apex (and relatively less fleshy?).

Kalanchoe thyrsiflora Harv. ??

Yes, may be Kalanchoe thyrsiflora Harv. as per image, references and details herein.
This species is quite confusing with Kalanchoe luciae,
Differences between the two are given at Platzafrica

Seen growing on a house compound wall.

Piper Species?

Does not look like Piper sp. Ficus sp. ??

Could be kalanchoe species 

Thanks … It was like a vine climbing up.

Any other views ???? ma’am,

What about two thick stems in foreground? Same plant?

I have only one picture.
We had parked the vehicle and since it was an unknown house, I took a picture from the car itself.
Since someone can come out and object.
That area was also unknown and very crowded.
Yes, the stems are of the same plant, and it had gone up 5-6 feet clinging to the wall.

Some Orchid Species?

I also think it may be some Crassulaceae member as per comparative images herein.

Something close to Senecio jacobsonii?

Thanks … My variegated potted plant from Lalbagh could be the same.

There is one similar  looking – The Palm Room at Link

It does look close.
