Cotyledon tomentosa might be one of the cutest plant around! This plant caught my attention years ago when I didn't realize my love for plants. The leaves are thick and fleshy and they resemble cartoon bear paws! I've grown one for about a decade now and it just gets ever-so-slightly taller each year. Very cute.
