Can anyone identify this plant? My nephew was given a pot of small cactus and now one has started to grow he wants to find out what it is and how to care for it properly.

    Hello Bagpuss57

    That is not a cactus ; it is a Crassula ( C . lycopodioides) .

    You'll probably find it listed as crassula muscosa. The one next to it also isn't a cactus. It's a haworthia and it likes bright light but less direct sun than a cactus usually would.
    Unlike the brain, the stomach warns you when it's empty.
