Hi, I'm very new and have only been getting my hands in the dirt for about 2 years.
I absolutely love succulents, I purchased a few yesterday and was having trouble identifying them.
Hope you can help!

Welcome! Suzy!
That is a nice selection. I think no. 3 is a variegated Portulacaria afra.

Thank You!
I couldn't pass them up for the low price.
My center piece is flapjacks, never seen it before and I couldn't leave it.

Suzy, have you taken a look at our special forum for Cactus and Tender Succulents ? I'm sure the folks over there will know all your plants, and also have lots of advice for you on growing them.

Hello Suzy!

#6 is Crassula muscosa pseudolycopodiodes - commonly called as watch chain

#4 looks like Crassula perforata

#3 - agree with Hetty's id on it of Portulacaria afra variegated

#1 and #2 - to me it looks like some type of sedum

#5 sorry don't know Shrug!

No, not a donkey tail.

Donkey tail or Sedum morganianum looks like this: the one that is hanging down

#2 looks like


Could #5 be a young plant of Echeveria nodulosa?


#1 looks familiar, but I can't place it at this time.

You are welcome Suzy. I would love to see your plant #5 when it has grown, so we can tell for sure if it is E. nodulosa.

By the way, Welcome! to ATP. So glad you found your way here. Hurray!

All of you have been incredibly helpful & I really appreciate it!
I have just one more plant that I've had for a few months & I'm just not sure what its correct name is, I grabbed it out of my great grandfathers garden when I went down to Florida.
I know its a cactus, its velvety & its growing fairly quick!

A Stapelia of some sort. You will have to wait for a flower to know for sure. If its growing fast and gets large, it may be Stapelia gigantea.

Hi Suzy, just remembered your #1 for id succulent..I knew I have seen it before, and looking at my plants outdoors, I think your plant is Graptosedum Vera Higgins.

This is how my Graptosedum Vera Higgins look like:

Graptosedum, that was the other one I wanted to suggest but couldn't think of it. I have 'Vera Higgins' too!

So I went back to the garden center a few days ago and I looked for #1, I found the tag & it says its "Jet Beads" -Sedeveria
