ET's Fingers comes from the Crassulacea family that consists of more than 200 known species. A fun variety to collect, that grows in a shrub-like form. The lime green finger-like leaves have a suction cup top that turn red if given enough light. This succulent plant can thrive indoors and outdoors, a great quality to have in a plant if temperatures in your area reach a freezing point that will stop you from keeping tender succulent plants outdoors all year round.

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

Knowing what your planting zone is can be vitally important to your plants thriving. Keep in mind that the zones pertain to OUTDOOR planting. If you plan to keep your plants indoors for fall-winter the zones may be irrelevant.
THIS is such a weirdly cool looking plant. I love it. It does remind me of ETs fingers and of course, when I stare at them I just have to say, " ET. Phone. Home." LOL
