Sedum burrito and album coral carpet (album or rubrotinctum- anything that looks like a pink/red jellybean)
miniature veriagated jade (sedum Makinoi?)
graptoveria or graptosedum - anything blue grey

You guys might remember a trailing multi-planter that my mom gave me 3-4 years ago that was my favorite. I killed most of it since January, working 12 hour days at my pediatric OT rotation pending graduation and board exams. I have 2 weeks left (whoo hoo!) and NY temps/humidity will be spot on for another 6 weeks and I think I can bring it back to life with cuttings.

So nothing to salvage?

Edit: Sorry, I meant from your pot. I don't have anything to offer though, sorry. Lowes had some sedums recently, have you tried looking there? I think they were $2.98 for a 4" pot.

Thank you for asking. Yes, I have salvaged, not sure exactly how to handle the little buds blooming from bare stalks (cut and replant, allow to grow?)

and I also found some GROSSLY overpriced 2.5" pots- $4.99 - mostly dirt, at HD and Lowes

I decided to do a half-n-half- split the barely rooted nonsense I bought with the huge root bound stems remaining.

Now I have a new sedum identification question: same or different?

The size is WAY off, but the color (at this time of year in NY) is similar, shape and growing pattern is same, and when I had the larger version before, and their leaves fell off, I grew stems of these little babies-

think with the proper care the later will become the former ? and or what names might you suggest?

Big congratulations on your coming graduation! Good luck with the boards. That sounds like it will be a good job to have.

I'm sorry I can't help with any succulent ID's.

@Hamwild, I think you must have mistook me for someone else. Maybe @Tarev?
