Anyone know what type of plant this is?
Wanting to make sure I give it the best care.
4ft to light, indirect
4” pot without drainage
Last watered 3 weeks ago
Los Angeles, California
Looks to me like it might be weeping jade

It’s a succulent of some kind. It needs a larger pot with drainage so it never stands in water.
Looks a little like a burro’s tail (Sedum morganianum).
Not 109% sure but I believe it’s a echeveria of some sort that is reaching for light and getting very leggy.
is right, it’s a burro’s tail sedum. A small terracotta pot with drainage and succulent soil will make it very happy. It needs full sun. It doesn’t not need to be watered very often (about every 3 weeks) and only transplant into a larger pot over other year.
Some type of sedum. They need lots of light and not a lot of water. Unfortunately I’ve found once they become leggy, you can’t reverse the legginess. (Although your plant looks cute:) But you can easily propagate the leaves and then add them back to the pot and with proper lighting, the babies will grow normal. That’s just my experience 🤷♀️
also, if you find that having the limbs hanging out of the pot is annoying or getting the leaves bumped off, I would put a chopstick in the middle and tie them up so they stand up straight 😎
My experience with Donkey Tail or Burro Tail is leaves hang/grow down the length of the tail. In your pic they are growing back towards the plant. I suspect a variety I’m not familiar with or a ground cover similar to an ice plant. It does seem to be leggy and is definitely a succulent needing little water.
totally agree. Same in my experience and I also agree with
this looks just like it!! Thanks you!
