I'm new to succulents, but I've done a fair share of research and I've seen all classical "Brands and Models" so to speak, and this little guy is not one of those! When I saw it, I just had to buy it, it has great potential to be trained as (mini) bonsai!
It has a thick stem, that tapers very rapidly to form a thin apex. Reminds me a bit of a BAOBAB tree. It has no branches yet. Small tongue shaped leaves are growing directly from the stem. It is about 10 cm high (4 inches). These properties make it extremely suitable for mini bonsai, as you can see in the picture .
I just love this little guy .
Could anybody identify this little "tree like" succulent? I'd like to take proper care of it (does it like full sun? watering frequency? easy to grow cuttings from? etc...).
I'm a bit worried, 'cause the lower leaves are dying and falling off.
Here's a picture:
