I would appreciate any ID's of any plants you can make out!! If it's hard to explain which plant your IDing i will just google the names i get and i should be able to figure out which plants go to which plants.It's a tangled mess,i got to looking around & found a jade under some of the other plants that have grown leggy and huge and are now hanging out of the pot.

Any help of any kind is truly appreciated !!! I hope i'm not in over my head Confused But i have visions of beautiful succulent flower pots! Lovey dubby first i need to find out what they are and them how to care for them.

Nope not 100% sure. Just looks like it to me. I have the plant and the picture looks like the CF that has not gotten a lot of sun. If they get sun you get the purple shading here and there on the leaves.

I'm more thinking of a Crassula.

I went out and took a pic of my CF, It has its summer color because of the high light. Looking at the center small and the longer outside leaves make me think it is a CF.

If it is a CF it was a good find because it is not commonly sold any more. It is usually sold at specialty plant stores.

This plant has grown very ,very leggy.It's long and has grown up and over and down & over the pot.It has babies under almost every set of leaves.I will show you more picture's.It was so big and tangled up with other plants i had to cut it out and the first picture is what was left of the bottom of the stem,so there was no choice but to cut it into piece's.My question now is what to do with it.Should i remove big leaves and lay it down flat on soil or will the peices root from the ends in soil.I have done both and i did let them callous over first.Hoping they will root standing up.If that's unclear let me know and i will take pictures to post of what i have in soil.

In the 3rd picture there's a purplish colored rosette that has grow leggy and has a few rosettes at the ends if i cut these off to have shorter stems,callous them and put the in soil will they root from the stem or do i need to put the rosette in the soil to root.Thumb of 2012-08-09/jojoe/d072f9

These last 2 pictures,the 1st. one is the top and the 2nd is the rest of the plant!It's also gotten so long and twisted i don't know what to do with these plants.That's why I'm hoping i can cut them smaller to root them and then i will have enough plant to share and still make myself a couple nice pots.

Any advice is greatly appreciated and needed.I have more picture but i don't want to bombard everyone with these pictures.
If i can figure out what to do with these plants,let me know if anyone is interested in them! Hurray! plants are for sharing
Thank you
