quite sure it’s one of these – Crassulaceae: https://is.gd/qD1UNp

@kat It’s some kind of Jade. It’s very hard to kill. The leafs becomes thin and "wrinkly" if its unhappy.

@rtsn some of the leafs are doing exactly that. It’s worrying me. I gave it water. But now I think that might have been a bad thing

I have had one of those for about 25 years, and it is indeed hard to kill. I water it properly once a week and do nothing else really.

@kat Treat it like a cactus. Very few water and lotsa light. See that it won’t stand in wet soil. Best to use sandy, mineralic cactus soil. If a branch has eight leave pairs you might cut it down to two pairs. The branch will either form two new ones or go on with one, also might bring out a new branch at a leave below. You can bring them to flower with a trick. When it’s still cold outside but no frost, let’s say around 8-10C, put the plant outside for a while (1-2 weeks) and then back inside into the warmth. This cheat will make the plant feel like home in South Africa when its mating season and maybe will stimulate its lust.
