Identification again

So Greg defiantly misidentified my little succulent here. I'm not totally sure what it is, but I'm positive it's name had "Ghost" in it. The reason it's not in a pot, is because I have potted this sucker 5 TIMES. Every single pot, he decides he's too good for and just falls out. But, he's so intent on survival. I didn't water him for the longest time and he stuck through it. I decided I would give him another chance before I dug his grave. Any help? #succulentlove #plantid #happyplants

Looks like a Senecio Haworthii aka Cocoon Plant πŸͺ΄πŸŒΏπŸ˜Š
Pot him deeper! Almost to the leaves if you can. And firm!! Like worried you’re gonna suffocate his roots type firm. I use a potato masher for sandy/gravelly soils (no where near the plant stem itself though) and kinda bounce it on the soil to level and compact it in a similar way to shaking a cereal box and all the small bits go to the bottom πŸ˜… wait about a month and the roots should have gathered a decent anchor and you can remove about 1 cm (1/2 inch?) of media from the top and re-compact. Don’t forget to water in anytime you fiddle with the pitting media though! Even just the top.
That'd be a cocoon plant, and they can be defiant little things at time for sure! πŸ˜‚
