My grandmother gave me a start of a plant several years ago, but never
knew what it was. It is small, doesn't have leaves, doesn't bloom,
and slowly spreads on its own. To make a new plant, just cut a few 1"
pieces off and stick them in soil.
I took three pictures that somebody can hopefully identify:

Sorry I don't have an answer, but I'm interested to see what others
have to say. At first I thought it looked like a Stepelia which
produces a stinky (5 petal) star-shaped flower. All green plants
produce a flower or cone, so your plant will probably flower if given
ideal conditions. The flower really helps the identity. Nice
My first guess, seeing it had "no leaves" was a lithops. Wrong. They're one of
the few succulents I like, because they don't look like succulents. They
really do look like "living rocks" (or very early cellular division.)
I had looked up Crassulae (sp) when I bought my plant and found a picture of
this same plant. Unfortunately, I didn't bookmark the site. Before I replied
to the the other poster I tried to find the picture again on other sites to no
avail so just mentioned that I thought it was a Crassula, as I wasn't about to
look for it all night. Just trying to help : ).
To the first poster:
You seem to have many sprigs of this plant growing well. When I bought my
plant a few months ago, I divided it up. Part of it went into a succulent
planter garden I had, an old yellow glazed pottery planter with a gollum jade
(a cousin) and some more succulents planted. It's doing very well in a west
window now during winter and gives a good effect with straight growth and
My grandma passed some plants to me and they didn't make it when I moved far
away. I hope you can keep these plants long after your grandparents are gone
and that you all grow and flourish.
