Last one is Huernia I think. The one before that looks indeed to be a type of Kalanchoe. I'll go check something out.... and yeah on Aloe for nos. 2 and 3 I think.

The last one could be a Stapelia Orbea variegata. No way to tell untill it blooms. Saying this only because it looks so much like mine. (thanks RoRo).
Stapelia and Huernia are both 'Asclepiads'.

Your #5 is Kalanchoe Kewensis. I am impressed that you knew it was a Kalanchoe as it is a bit out of the normal. A leaf with root very easily and when the plant gets older, it will get quite tall.

Your Aloes will be difficult to get specific IDs on as there are many hybrids. You will find they will produce suckers (more plants) very freely which is why you will find them in places like the garden centers with only a generic ID.

Agreed on the last one being an Orbea (formerly known as a Caralluma) and all in the same Asclepiadaceae family as Huernia or Stapelia.

Enjoy your succulents! Kristi

The last to me also looks similar to 'Orbea', but also similarities to my Duvalia 'corderoyi'?

I forget if I knew the kalanchoe was one without looking at the label.
The same as the others except for the cactus they said whatever assorted.

Thanks for the help so far guys .

At first I thought number 6. was a euphorbia.
Will I get a postive id on it when it flowers and how big will it get?

Also do the aloes 2 & 3 look like they could be hybrids of Aloe brevifolia?
I say this because it says on the internet that there could be a lot of hybridization
of brevifolia going on. And the leaves on my aloes look just like brevifolia.

Those are so cute! Do you plan to make any group planters, or leave them separated? I'm always torn, the little pots fit there easily, but I knock them over futzing with the blinds, trying to touch the one next to it. Looks like you have some great windows but I can't see if there are any sills. I love having them! One great thing about an older house.

I've never had a #6 but it looks a little light in color. Do others think it should be darker green?

What is it about succulents that bringing just a couple in the house makes you suddenly start to think they are all cool? Don't think I'll ever have many with actual prickles, but I used to think these kinds of plants were boring. What is that? Is that what's happened to you, Adam?

Hello purpleinopp you know me as kuroc on GW.
I grow all my plants under lights because all I have is a north window in my apartment bedroom and all other rooms in the apartment are shared besides my roommates bedroom.
I've like succulents for a long time I can't remember what the first one I had was.
My favorite succulents are jades and I have 9 diffent varietys.

Cool! I didn't know there were even 9 kinds of jades. I did find a cute little variegated one yesterday with red edges. It's, of course, on a windowsill right now, waiting for the rain to let up so it can get into a real pot. Considering the light situation, your plants look amazing! Well done!

Yup, 2 & 3 are Aloes, and I'd agree that #2 is A. brevifolia. Very nice clumper, will get extra color in cooler weather.

I know that I've seen #3 a number of times - I always think that it's an A. plicatillis because of that cool flat leaf arrangement - but the plicatillis is smooth (http://www.smgrowers.com/products/plants/plantimage.asp?plan...) . Grrrr.... now it will drive me nutso until I figure it out!
In the end, only kindness matters.

It would be neat if it developed into a small aloe tree.

Adam, to me that 3rd one looks like a hybrid between gasteria and aloe! Because of that flat leaf growth! Thumbs up
