Hi I just wanted to see if u was right so I know how to care for it properly. Is it a baby donkey tail? (This is why I hate it when stores group EVERYTHING together with just a sticker that says assorted succulents) but I fel bad for them they had NO light :( the one I'm wondering about is in front. Thanks!

This was NOT an easy task, repotting this. I know most succulents are delicate but this gives it a WHOLE new meaning! Lol. Anyway here's another pic by itself to show it better. Thanks :)

RE: So is this a baby donkey tail?

This is a crawling Sedum of some sort. Sedum album is the best known, but unlike yours, it's green-leaved.

Blue-leaved cultivars of this type include Sedum 'Blue Carpet' (which may or may not be the same as Sedum hispanicum 'Blue Carpet'), Sedum dasyphyllum ‘Blue Surprise’ (aka Corsican Stonecrop, Blue Tears Sedum); there are probably many others. The experts on GW's Cacti & Succulents forum may be able to give you a definite ID. [If they say I'm wrong, go with what they say.]

Some of the donkey/burro succulents are Sedums, and at least one is a Sedevaria, but I don't believe yours will grow up to be any of the donkeys/burros.
