Think this is cotyledon tomentosa bear claw 🐻 🐾 - might be the yellow varigated form as well 💛💚💛💚

@QT - How do you know the difference between Cotyledon tomentosa and Cotyledon ladysmithensis? To my untrained eyes, they look to be the same. 🤔 This is a baby from my mother's plant that has really red tips, as it gets more sun than this one. Thank you for helping to educate me and properly ID this. 💕

They can be solid green or have the brown tips for the toes!

My mother started me a piece of her #Cotyledon tomentosa subsp. ladysmithensis. My two attempts failed; as always, her's first worked great. 😂 #cotyledon-tomentosa #cotyledon-ladysmithensis #cotyledon-bearpaws #southerncalifornia 29 May 2019

It is soft Laura. The tips are really red in the older plant. A definite fun one. 💕 @columbiariver

Oh, thank you, Leslie, for your concern. The area with the mud slides got a lot more rain than we did. ❤❤ @lesliecole49

Or maybe Cotyledon ladismithiensis. This has darker red on tips.
