Pachyphytum oviferum

For sale by P.Kennedy

This grower is fairly sure of this plant identification.

Very similar to the ghost plant, the sugar almond plant (the leaves aren't edible!) has more of a powder white farina that protects them from direct sun. This marks easily when touched. Tiny bright red flowers held deep in rows of white cups-(Summer).
