This plant has volunteered in my desert garden. I know it is not a weed. It looks familiar to me. It has long thin leaves an at the end of the leaves tiny round leaves sprout .

    Sounds like a variety of “Mother of Thousands” to me. Do the long, thin leaves look succulent? It’s hard to tell in the picture.

    We have two different plants that are called that. One has very thin leaves, like yours and one has somewhat fatter leaves. Both will bud literally thousands of babies from the ends of the leaves. That is what the little round leaves are.
