    Name This Plant

    Another fascinating thread...

    I was given one of these. I thought Mrs MCH was looking after it (because she looks after all the plants). Mrs MCH thought I was looking after it (because it was given to me). All was well for a few weeks then overnight every single leaf fell off it. She then started looking after it but it has remained a lifeless stalk.
    Now we (I) need to replace it.

    What is it?

    Aeonium (houseleek) maybe?

    Name This Plant

    Looks like a Stuart to me... or maybe a Stephanie if it's female.

    We never got to know him/her that well.

    I think you might be right but there are White Mexican Roses that look very similar and White Mexican Roses that look nothing like.

    Actually I think it's 'Aeonium Arboreum Atropurpureum'

    Unlike some suggested, looks like a house plant so demise could be due to a cold night.

    If dropped leaves look okay may well be easy to propagate from these.

    I think there is an app you can get which if you take a photo of it, it will tell you all about it, how to look after it etc. Afraid I don't know the name of the app but sure it will be searchable.

    I use Picture This - it's not 100% but pretty accurate

    I'm almost certain it is the Giant Stinkhorn:
