I have rooted quit a few cuttings, i thought it was a cf.But it didn't turn purple in the sun, it turned pink, hot pink.

What do i pot these in and if it is a Callisia Fragrans should it be put in a hanging pot or a trellis put in a pot to help hold it up.I'm hoping it will hang.

Any info on the care of this plant especially over wintering it inside is greatly appreciated!!!Thumb of 2012-09-19/jojoe/a7ffd6it turned almost red.i rooted it in a box with a few other plants.
Thumb of 2012-09-19/jojoe/f2fd91these are the tips of the plant,it's rooted good,it's growing well.
Thumb of 2012-09-19/jojoe/daaeecthe stem has babies growing at every leaf node,if there are leaves the babies grow under the leaves,this one didn't have any leaves left on it & the green ones weren't rooted in the sun.

A green thumb comes only as a result of the mistakes you make while learning to see things from the plants point of view!!

I purchased a pot about 8" or 10" can't remember now but it was marked down.So every plant was in bad shape,i have managed to save most of them but there are a few i haven't got an ID on.

I didn't notice until after i had gotten all the plants out of the pot and i was cleaning it off.Under the marked down sticker was another sticker,i removed the top mark down sticker.I found a sticker that said Succulent bowl pattern,perennials comes back every year and a list of names.I think the 1st. is misspelled Sedum Adolphy,( i only found a Sedum Adolphii) Sedum Variegatum,(no idea)Lampranthus pink Vygie,(i saved this one so far,hope it makes it through the winter) Senecio Mandralis Blue,(still trying to get these to root)Graptosedum Hybrid 'vera Higgins' (I don't think it's hardy to zone 8)Crassula Hobbit (doing good) Crassula campfire (can't find it & never heard of it??)

So i don't think it's a Crassula Confused that leaves Sedum Variegatum and i have no idea what that could be or it's everything in the sedum family left in the pot? Shrug!

The other one left i need to put on the ID forum are these,they were tiny & have finally gotten big enough to maybe get an ID.They must be from a plant that died or just seeds that some how fell in the pot maybe at the nursery?

What size pot is a 1.5gal. that's how the pot was marked.

Could that striped/spotted one me a Kalanchoe? Mother of thousands? One of the many varieties?
You may have actually got the tiny babies from the leaf tips.

If your talking about the first 2 pictures,those are the only plant left that i don't have an ID for.The pot was labeled perennials but the parent plant must have died before i got the pot.It was marked down & i had been looking at them for over a month on the shelf not selling,they wanted over $25.00 for an 8 inch pot.They were not in the pot until i got it,watered it good it was unreal dry the soil was hard and put it outside in the sun.Then they started popping up so they are babies from a plant that didn't make it i believe.

I will look up kalanchoe is there an certain genus or species you think they fit and would be good to look under?

I typed sedum rubrotinctum in on DG's plant files search bar and was able to id a few of the plants.Same with sedum Adolphii there are so many plants under that name i'm not sure which i have. Confused

Thanks for the help it's always welcome!!!!
