    That's exactly it! It's coming with me to work, to brighten up the tiniest little office for three that I've ever seen To be fair, the coffee percolator will bring even more joy

    I have a lovely one which I think is called 'horntree' - can't seem to upload a photo. The leaves are still fleshy but curled and fused to form open ended tubes - really lovely. Have seen several species ones flower and they're fine afterwards.

    Oooh I bought a few succulents recently for the old job, and the horntree was one of them. I just didn't know that it is called that. They're so cool! I would buy more if I see them again

    I think you will find it is "Red Horn".

    If you want another interesting one Google Crassula 'Buddha’s Temple'

    If you can wait till the summer, try tracking down your local branch of the British Cactus and Succulent Society and going to their summer show. There will probably be loads of plants for sale at good prices.

    Thank you Danny - wow, I've never seen that one before! Buddha's temple is fantastic! I will need to get me one of them

    Glad you liked it. Another one with interesting leaves and a very large head of red flowers is Perfoliata.

    Salivate over these!

    One advantage of buying at a BCSS show is you'll get useful advice as to how easy they are to kill! Don't know about other branches but at mine I got the Temple one for couple of pounds, later saw at Hampton Court for 10!
