Identifying a Houseplant

I know it is some type of succulent, but can not find it anywhere on line. It looks like a jade plant, but with long narrow leaves that get very long once matured. It is slow growing. It got straggly so I pruned it back to propagate and control the original plant growth by supplementing with grow light.

Hi Judy. Thanks for the reply. I really think it's some kind of Jade, too but; it's not that kind. My daughter has that one and it is so cool. I want one, too. I like the way it looks like a tube.

Again, appreciate your help. take care. :)

Wow!! I am so stumped. I have been raising various jades for years and I have never seen one with this leaf shape. I wonder if it is immature or mutated or a hybrid? There are lots of different leave shapes, but this looks like a whirley-gig to me and that is what has me so puzzled.

Are you in the US? You may want to try your local Home Extension office and see if they can get to a good ID:

Please post back with what you learn!! I love my jades they are so easy to propagate and if you aren't careful you can get a houseful very quickly! That is why I love them!!

Hi Pghgirl40,
We feel it is some kind of Jade, too. The large leaf right in front is mature. The others are various ages. My friend bought it with other plants in it. Most of them died but this one survived. I have cut it back and am rooting new plants from them to see if they will come out different.

At first I thought the leaves were long due to light conditions but even the new leaves look the same just not as big yet. I even thought it may be a version of an Elephant Bush plant but none of the leaves look like this.
Some day I will find the answer. I will pass it along when I do. BTW, VA Tech has an office near me that is linked to the extension agency. I may go t them.
Thanks again!

I had a Elephant Bush Jade that I loved to pieces and did not get custody of it in the divorce. That still makes me sad and that was a VERY LONG time ago.

I think my mom has one of the last babies from that one still growing.

I bet the VA extension is like our Penn State one and very kind and helpful.

I am excited to learn more about what you have.

That is great that you are growing new ones. They are so easy to root. I never even used fertilizer. Just water and saran wrap, or if I was being lazy, just dirt. Both worked!!

LOL I use to live in Clearfield. I thought your "handle" stood for that city (Pgh). As soon as I know I will post.

Clearfield!! Like near Punxy? Center of the state? I used to visit that part of the state in very early 1980s. It was all farm country then!!

Pittsburgh is the closest city to me. We are way outside the city, but for years I did work "daantawn" to use Pittsburgh-ese!

I love my area!!

My friends from the area (Punxy and Dubois) left also. Sad.

One is in NY. The other is way outside of Pittsburgh. It was such a nice, peaceful area when I visited. I bet it has changed a lot!
