unknown plant
unknown plant  
Please identify the attached image for me for my friend who has purchased it in a clearance and wants to know how to care for it.

Thanks.

Answer
Hi S,

This is a succulent plant - a Cotyledon.  Succulents like it on the dry side.  They don't want excess water or humidity.  They like it sunny, so if it's kept indoors in a pot, choose your hottest window.  They cannot take frost or freezes.  Cotyledons are easy to propagate from leaf cuttings.  The flowers last a long time.  The plant needs good drainage or it's subject to root rot.  
Thanks,
Susan
