Mystery Succulent

Good Morning, All! I have this little mystery houseplant on my desk here at work, and as you can see, he's not doing too well. I'm trying to decide what kind of plant he is, so that maybe I can find some tips for perking him up. He's well watered, so now I'm thinking that I might have overwatered...

Thank you all so much!

Possibly Sedum rubrotinctum, and could easily get waterlogged. Stand the pot on several sheets of absorbent paper until any excess water has gone and leave to dry. The individual "leaves" can be stood in dry sand for a few weeks and they should grow into new plants.

RE: Mystery Succulent

They don't like a lot of water. You can poke each of those little 'leaves' into the soil and they will root. (Make a hole with a pencil and then poke his nose into the soil. Firm soil around his nose with the erasure end of the pencil.)

Thank you all so much!
