    You’re welcome, and appreciate on the ID feedback! You would be the best judge for this succulent for having it in person. Due to some miss identification between the two plants, check out these included below links for close up of their flowers. Just click on the tab “Habit Pictures” for more images. According to sources the G. pentandrum’s the flowers upper surface is yellowish white and the red coloring of the flowers petals is dark red and more solid. On G. superbum flowers upper surface is greenish yellow and the red coloring is cross banda with reddish brown tone. Best wishes Richard! On the side note, plants shopping where you are looks like a great adventure.

    Hi Richard, with out its flowers to help narrow down. I could only speculating for now. Yours might be in the Graptopetalum genus (?). The species with similar color include G. superbum syn. graptopetalum pentandrum superbum). A hybrid with the name “Murasaki” also with the same look. When yours blooms and you still don’t know make new post with photo of flowers. Check out these included links and see if you have a match. Best wishes. https://calphotos.berkeley.edu/cgi/img_query?where-taxon=Graptopetalum+pentandrum+ssp.+superbum&where-lifeform=specimen_tag&rel-lifeform=ne&rel-taxon=begins+with&title_tag=Graptopetalum+pentandrum+ssp.+superbum
