#1 is Crassula Muscosa - Watch Chain Plant

#2 Kalanchoe?

Okay, I'm tapped out. Too much brain power went into that. Smiling

#2 looks like Kalanchoe millotii, if it's fuzzy: Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe millotii)

#3 looks like a Senecio, like this one or similar, there are several: Senecio (Senecio cylindricus)

And #3 also bears a strong resemblance to this Peperomia: Peperomia ferreyrae

I don't know succulents well at all but my guesses:

#1 Watch Chain Plant (Crassula muscosa)

#2 Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe millotii)

#3 Possibly Miniature Pine Tree (Crassula tetragona) or Senecio (Senecio cylindricus)
Also compare to:
Succulent Bush Senecio (Senecio barbertonicus)
Blue Chalk Sticks (Kleinia mandraliscae)

#4 ? Maybe Echeveria or Graptopetalum?

It may be the growing conditions but #1 looks a lot different in leaf stricture than the Watch Chain I have to compare with.

Hello everyone!
Boy was I excited when I saw these replies!! For some reason I got no notifications in my email and I've been checking it like mad since I posted.

Thanks for the welcome Daisy! Smiling

I have been digging around on google since I picked up the plants from Lowe but haven't had much success in finding the names. You guys rock!

Apologies for the last picture being so blurry. I'll post a better shot here if any of you want to take another crack at it.

I'm pretty sure plantlady and sally are right about it being graptopetalums.

Madcrate, it looks like the stems on your watch chain are thicker and more scarce. It could be a climate difference like you said.

PurpleIn- Yes the plant in the second photo is actually fuzzy to the touch. Kalanchoe it is!

Thanks to everyone who contributed! Hurray! And good job I tip my hat to you.

Happy to help you investigate. That last pic looks Senecio-ish to me.

Hello Jelly, nice collection!
First one: watch chain succulent- Crassula muscosa pseudolycopodiodes
2nd one: some type of kalanchoe
3rd and 4th one: not certain, but try to see Senecios and Dudleyas, there is a lot in those categories.

I'm certainly outnumbered but I still think #1 is not Crassula muscosa. Leaf structure is wrong, the photo show individual round needle like leaves.

Could it be that they are at different stages of growth/development? How big is your plant?

I ran across a plant that sure appears like #1, it is Crassula x imperialis, or Giant Watch Chain.
