Elephant bush succulent

I bought a wilting succulent the other day from a home improvement store to see if it could be revived.

It's an Elephant bush succulent, and care instructions I found online recommended watering from spring to early fall. It perked up the day after I watered it:

It's been sitting in my west-facing window for a few days soaking up the sun and producing new growth.

Hopefully I can propagate it in a few weeks.
