Thanks. I have added them to the database. I just got a sad looking cyphostemma juttae bare root from ebay. We'll see how it fares.

Took a few pics today and hadn't realized just how much taller my Euphorbia (1st pic) had grown. And can anyone tell me what the last pic is of? For the life of me I can't even remember where I got it. I think it's from South America.

Are you sure? Because it doesn't perform like one.

I was more thinking of the Euphorbia tirucalli rather than Rhipsalis.

Kim,
the second plant is a Sempervivum (Hen and Chicks) I believe it is the cv. called Oddity

the next pic is a Gasteria, there are soooooo many & I am no expert on those so not sure which specific species you have.

the third is a Rhipsalis, again soooo many & these are sooooo variable I find them difficult to ID.

Cool flowers on the Gasteria!

If the last is a Rhipsalis, it's probably an epiphyte, not a full sun plant, or one that would appreciate getting really dry. It looks like it might be getting a lot? A thought when I saw the reddish/yellow colors. What are the whitish things on some tips? Pic not clear enough for my bifocals.

The whitish things on the tips are flowers!

I've done some research on the plant in the third picture and I believe it's a cynanchum insigne. I'm going to the California Cactus Center in Pasadena later this week & I'll bring a picture or cutting with me. They know EVERYTHING about succulents there! They've got a cyphostemma juttae there that has been consistently winning first place at the Inter City Cactus & Succulent show since, like 1978. Amazing nursery!
