    In 2 inch pot in a 3inch saucer.

    I've had this for nearly two years.

    I would love to cut them into pieces and make a few pots out of it.

    It looks like it has "succulent leaves and stems so...Most likely a Sedum or a closely related succulent.
    Has it bloomed?

    For two years I have had it, no flowers.
    They just got longer overall, and a lot more of them than when first bought.

    I'm thinking sedum angelicum??

    at least close to it. maybe a hybrid.
    put part of it in basically full sunlight and it will probably bloom.

    The more I look at the photos, the less confident I get. hmmm

    I like how the plant looks and color, not wanting to see flowers, although I'm not against it.

    wondering what the name is.

    To have a chance of ID you need to see the flowers, That's why I suggested you make a cutting and put it in more light.

    Looks like a dead-ringer for some Sedum brevifolium I've seen. There are a few that are similar, but yours has slightly flattened leaves which leads me to think it is more likely to be the S. brevifolium. Supposed to have tiny white 5 petal blooms, but I've never seen one flower.

    Yes, they look similar but as you say, the leaves on mine are flat.
    The search continues, I guess.
