I saw this at my friend's house today but she has no idea what it is



It's got a roughish furry feel to it but is very soft. Seems to require very low light levels to grow.

Hi,
That is some kind of hybrid with Echeveria being one parent. I'm surprised it's doing so well in low light - they like bright light, and it would actually look better, than it already does. It will flower eventually also - usually a cool reddish/pinkish clump on top of a tall stalk. And no, it would not make for a good terrarium plant, as they are succulents.

I'm assuming you're talking about dart frog terr's, which must be moist - but to answer your question - most succulents and cacti need it dry - but there are a few jungle cacti / succulents that can do okay with moisture - namely a few epiphytic ones.

Oh sorry, actually talking about small lizard or gecko terrariums.

This plant really didn't look like a Echeveria in person. It's just been chilling next to the TV with small amounts of light and grows strong

That's because it isn't. It is a hybrid, with Echeveria as one of the parents. I have seen these before, but the other parent escapes my memory at the moment.
It depends on what kind of lizard you are keeping - some lizards would ruin the plant. It also depends on what kind of gecko - some geckos like it dry, others like it moist.
As before, there are plants for both situations that are succulents. Good luck!
