Sedum morganianum (Donkey Tail, Burro's Tail) - Succulent plant native to Mexico and Honduras is a popular houseplant. I had one of these plants for 30 years. It's a slow grower but mine was 3 times as long.
Most succulents are light-lovers, but a surprising number prefer bright shade and do well as windowsill plants. Among these are striped zebra plants (haworthias) and kalanchoes that bloom in every warm hue.
