I do not know much about gardening my friend gave me this plant and I figured it was some sort of cactus or desert plant but I honestly have no idea. It doesn’t seem to ever flower just keeps growing more and more of the green buds over time. I’d like to know what it is specifically so I can best take care of it.

    Definitely Echeveria. Also see “Hen & Chicks” and “Houseleeks”.
    These plants pretty much thrive on neglect, so don’t water them much.

    P.S. With enough sun and practically no water, they should bloom, but they are sometimes slow in doing so.
