Succulent Flower

Succulent Flower (2337)
This is a plant I got from my friend Emrys last year
. He lived in Concord, California, which has a warm, dry season, but never experiences heat like we do here in Coachella Valley. The succulent is still in the very lovely pot that Emrys put it in. It's in a spot with a little shade and it gets regular water. It didn't seem to be dying, but I couldn't say it was thriving either. Just sort of at stasis. And then today I saw this flower stalk on it. Apparently all it needed was four sequential days of trans-100° heat to achieve rapturous joy so that it could flower.

Here's a picture of the leaves if anyone would care to give it an identity.

I don't know what it is.

I think you're right.

Commonly known as pig ear succulent, a member of the Cotyledon family - maybe orbiculata
