The answers to this question have two different answers.
Someone believes here it is Crassula, most probably Crassula Ovata ("jade" plant).
But the other answer claims this is Portulacaria Afra a.k.a. Elephant Bush (funny name)
I would have thought the initial answer about Crassula was the right one, but now I see the picture of the other, Portulacaria, and I don't know what to think anymore.
- here is Crassula Ovata(creds. to wikipedia):
- and here is Portulacaria Afra (creds. to wikipedia):
Indeed from the initial question, leaves are very similar to both:
And wiki says it:
Similar in appearance to the unrelated "jade plant"!
I recon flowers would help see which one it is. But if there's none? Any idea how we could differentiate them when they are not bearing flowers?
