Looked at all the Graptos and except for a headache and further confusion, zilch Shrug! . You need a Grapto fan to come and ID these, Janet I just don't have the eye as yet to catch the slight differences.

The first one I had thought was xGraptoveria Douglas Huth

The thread "ID Please." in Plant ID forum

The second one, X Graptosedum 'Francesco Baldi'. Put the photos next to each other, they look the same.

Except when they are placed together. Let me place both together in the daylight(GMT+5) then meditate on both Shrug! . If I can show the difference in a photograph I will try to do so. These have been inbred and cross bred so much Thumbs down .
It is not just in Grapto's I have a mounding ground cover kind of succulent, sorry three of them. This much I can make out from the flowers that they belong to the same family but if you look at the leaves, totally different.
Then I have a Senico that looks like an ivy and I was going to post a photograph and query about it but due to miss identification what I thought was an Ivy has spent a tortured one year along the North wall. Let the poor thing recover. This much though, it is an Alpine.

Remember that there are variations in most plants Arif.

Poor Senecio/Ivy lookalike, I hope it recovers. They are sent to test us. Hilarious!

No, they were created by some of us to test the rest of us, the ones he created are easier to identify Grumbling .
