What the heck is this?

seedmoneyMarch 29, 2014

The only thing I'm certain of is that it is a succulent. It grows in a rosette and is starfish-shaped...or, after a couple of cold ones, it starts to look like an octopus. The leaves are very flat and pliable, kind of like a piece of Juicy Fruit gum, if you will. The top of the leaves are striated and small white harmless spines are present. The spines on the underside form a "wave" pattern. The plant is in a 4" pot.
So, what do you think? Is this an aloe? Dyckia? Puya? Orthophytum? Or some other type of bromeliad? Looking forward to your comments.

Maybe a Dyckia? -Here is one that resembles your plant.
