I've seen this beautiful specimen online once before while browsing interesting-looking plants, but have forgotten its name. This one I purchased about three weeks back. What is its name and how do growers usually care for it? Image 1 Image 2

This is a houseleek - you can read more about it here. It is quite varied in its appearance as a group of plants, often with a pointed tip to the leaf and with red tinge to the extremity of the leaf. Yours is a round leaf type with little or no red. Water sparingly, provide sharp drainage and give good light.

    Is it of the Aeonium genus? If so, I'm wondering if it could be Aeonium tabuliforme, or something else. – Q Z Jul 19 at 4:31

It's likely a part of the genus Aeonium, the houseleeks. Particularly, it could be Aeonium tabuliforme. When it gets large, it may spread out like a saucer or curve down onto the ground.
