Does it make a long "tail". I have one that looks similiar called "donkey's tail". I'm no good at "botanical" names.

Changed my mind a little Shrek..I think that Catgrass could be right there........try Sedum morganianum ..botanical name for Donkey tail.

sedum morganianum is commonly called donkey tail. If you leave it in a hanging basket it can get very long, but it is hard to move as it breaks easily.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.

Looking at on-line photos for this species and comparing, yours doesn't have the fleshy but flattened shield-like leaves and have the more rounded leaves that are closer to the typical Donkey's Tail.

Actually, though, yours look sort of half way in between the shapes. Where did you get them? Were they grown from seeds?

...OK, What about Graptopetalum pachyphyllum?
