Hi,

If anyone can help ID this house plant that would be great,

Bought in the UK, currently around 20cm tall, the leaves are thick, but narrow,

Don't know this one, will have a look in house plant expert

Had a quick look but couldn't narrow it down. If you can get hold of this book, it might help.  On the copy that I have there is a key/flowchart  to help identifying plants on page 52-53 just by looking at the leaves etc.

It looks a bit similiar to a type of umbrella plant or maybe a succulent

It is a South African plant called Senecio - not sure which type of Senecio though. They can take light frost if the soil is dry but no hard frosts.
