Crassula ? species photographed from Srinagar Kashmir as House plant. Please help in ID.

Can it be an hybrid like Crassula falcata

not crassula

not a jade plant

this is sedum… most likely sedum clavatum

yes …, perhaps you are right. It is Sedum

But I think I have S. clavatum
This may be a different species, or a cultivar of S. burrito

that’s what I have said

Sedum clavatum

For me also Sedum burrito  link: http://flickrhivemind.net/Tags/burrito,sedum/Interesting

Inflorescence doesn’t match with any of the suggested id(s). This is possibly a Sedeveria, similar to https://www.etsy.com/in-en/listing/181083347/succulent-plant-sedeveria-blue-giant?ref=market

the leaves in your link are like fingers, longish not roundish leaves
look about halfway down tha page in this link…

for sedum clavatum :Sedum clavatum
also ETSY is a site  where housewives sell household stuff  often their own handmade..handgrown etc … not always scientific …

I admit that you are much much more familiar with these kind of plants. All these are entirely unknown to me. Yet, I do not think it is possible to ID this plant merely based on available images in the net.
You may be correct, more pics at Dave’s – http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/200001/, but leaves look like more compact & rosette, inflorescence and flowers also look different to me.
I still think this is some cultivar of Sedeveria – http://crassulaceae.net/xsedeveriamenu/39-xSedeveriacv/544-sedeveria-x-hummellii-engl, not particularly the linked one, neither the one in the housewives’ site.

how about Pachyveria scheideckeri you had suggested for my other upload


no, to this last request

pointed leaves of echeveria are retained in the hybrid…in this last link, …

your present plant does not have pointed leaves
Also its difficult to argue about the exact species in cases of crassulaceae
as you all must have seen these two weeks that they hybridize like rabbits, across party lines
and even develop tumor like knobs, sometimes good looking and sometimes very ugly… see the ruffled echeveria pitures…
and its almost mindboggling to think  one can  know the exact species based on one set or even just one picture…   since they look different in different seasons… there are sites that show a few such seasonal changes…..
answer would be ultimately to get DNA finger prints and Chromosome numbers etc
I understand that they differ between species and then remain true.
but I am not the person to go to in such botanical studies…
There is an uncanny resemblance to this description and picture on this URL,
url: http://www.succulents.us/sedums.html

I looked the last link you have is bw and also shows a somewhat pointed leaf outline…
echeverias have that
sedum does not usually has rounded top end…as is in this case…
Also please look at my response above to … and all, includes you too.

The link I have provided in my earlier mail informs, in its description of ‘SEDEVERIA x Hummellii sp. nov.’, “leaves…. at apex obtuish to acute… .”  But, now I change my view.
Two features of this plant are –
1) naked peduncle
2) prominent leaf scar
and third, moonstone like leaves
Google search doesn’t provide any image, either of Sedum or Sedeveria or of Echeveria.showing those two characters.
Instead we will have to think of the genus Pachyphytum, something in the line P. oviferum or P. hookeri.

Pachyphytum is most likely out since they tend to have pointed ends to the succulent leaves and their flowering spikes are also different..

… is this in a house you can access now? so what is the follow up? would love to know…

I do not agree with with your leaf diagnosis, not sure about inflorescence. Neither do I claim this is Pachyphytum, for there is look alike/
