I picked up a mixed succulent pot at Lowes for 1.00 and I am making some small pots out of the pieces that are alive.

Can these be identified. The only one I know is Kiwi because I have that one. But the others I have no idea. Here are a couple different views.


The ones I am trying to identify is .........

-the hanging type suc, that has sort of a triangular ball

-Some sort of variegated Jade,

-and the one that looks like moss.

Cute shoes. Lovey dubby I am going to be lazy and use common names but the draping one is string of bananas, the tall variegated is a elephant bush and yes the fat leafed one is a jade. Sorry for being lazy and not providing proper I.D.

Just some thoughts....... that fat leafed jade can be a bully compared to the others with root structure. Also, it will be top heavy for your adorable shoes.

Ty Audrey common names are fine for me. It is more than I had.

Every variegatied jade I get stay small probably because of my weather and my bad treatment through the winter. I do not like to water plants so they get stored cool and dry. I have a lot of jades in little pots.

I have had this variegated jade and other plants in this little pot for 2 yrs. This will be the 3rd yr,

Nice pick-up. Cinta, I can't seem to keep jades myself. Too much water or some thing. It is the least watered plant I own. Looks ok all thur winter till April just before bring outside them all the leaves drop and some stems rot off. Just a small section survives to keep hanging on till the next winter kill season comes.

Cinta your jades are more behaved than mine. I keep chopping mine into smaller pieces. It has started to become that scene from fantasia with all the broom sticks. Hilarious!

Stush, I think you are killing the plant with kindness. I treat my plants with tough love. No perfect soil, no drainage holes and they know they have to fight for life. It gives them something to do other than dying. Stush they get watered maybe once or twice all winter.

Audrey that is funny. You realize you have better weather than what I experience. Our winters are long and dark. Very little sun and I do not provide extra light for my plants. I keep them in my sun room all winter and there is not much light.

Do you know what the moss looking plant is? I know when they put these combo pots together sometime they mix annuals in with the succulents. I am wondering if it is a succulent or another plant.

Planto is right. The first one is Senecio radicans, string of bananas. The jade looks like Crassula ovata variegata, the third is Crassula muscosa...it has flowered and seeded, hence the rough look...it should make nice, tight little chains again on the old seeded one.

Thank you Planto and Kate. I thought it had flowered because I say a fuzzy seed head on one piece. I sprinkled them on top of the soil maybe I will get some babies. I did that with my Crassula Campfire and I got a lot of babies this year
