and some onion looking thing i got for christmas. i'm thinking it's a narcissus? it's bulbous, at least.

the one in the corner is a dying walmart plant i think, but the pieces that have fallen off are sprouting so i'm letting it do its own thing.
the empty looking pot is some random flower sprouts from two days ago.

and that's basically my whole collection of plants, besides the cool looking weeds i pulled from my yard and threw in a pot lol. it's small, but i love what i have.

Hi baconllama, Welcome!

I'm not real familiar with many succulents but I'll make a couple of guesses as to what your plants might be. Smiling


#1 With those white filaments (hairs) reminds me of Sand Rose (Anacampseros rufescens)
#2 Reminds me of Kalanchoe but I don't know for sure. We have lots listed in our database with photos you can use for comparison: https://garden.org/plants/sear...
#3 Reminds me of Narcissus/Daffodil, one for comparison: Paperwhites (Narcissus 'Ziva')

I'm sure others more familiar with succulents will be able to offer suggestions and possible exact ID's.

@plantladylin hi, thanks so much for the conment, it really helps!!!
as for the first one, i think you're right! i'm going to make an effort to give it more sunlight and see if the leaves are oddly shaped because they may be etiolated or if they are just shaped like that.

the tall one, i now have looked into it and i think it's an aurora borealis! my reasoning is that the stem and leaf shape looks correct, and it is starting to turn colors just like in some google pictures :)

thanks so much again!! i love having an idea of what plants i have so your comment is really appreciated

You are very welcome, although they were just guesses on my part. Smiling

Here are our database links to the Kalanchoe you referred and more photos for comparison:
Kalanchoe Stonecrop (Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi)
Aurora Borealis (Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi 'Marginata')

Member @purpleinopp Tiffany is really good at identifying Kalanchoe (and many other plants!) so she may be able to help with the exact ID of your plant.
