|I am still receiving plants from a friends collection that passed away recently.Unfortunately i know nothing about this type of succulents,but I'm learning "fast".Her husband decided to share them when he realized he didn't have a clue how to care for them and they began looking bad.
Some look pretty good other's i may loose but i have to try.I have a plastic ice cream bucket with soil in the bottom i'm keeping some in & keeping soil barely damp.I have another bucket with portulaca cuttings in it.
Any ID's or care info or potting info will be appreciated,especially potting i really need to get these plants into pots.I have cactus,succulent soil,3 strawberry pots,from 1 row of holes down to 3 rows of side holes,I also have a round,very shallow, Terra cotta pot.Not sure which plants will do best planted shallow or in strawberry pots.1.
i also have cuttings from a clementis and another rooting that i don't have an ID on yet,as well as a cutting off of a eucalyptus tree and told to just stick bigger ones in the ground,smaller ones in pots and they will root?!?
sorry so many ID's are needed but i really appreciate and help on ID and potting and care or a link to a good site to help me with this info.
Have a wonderful sunday
A green thumb comes only as a result of the mistakes you make while learning to see things from the plants point of view!!

|Nice little adopted collection!
I'm not sure about the rest, I'm new to succulents as well, but I'm pretty sure the last photo is purslane.
Gardening is cheaper than therapy!
Boricua in Florida, I guess that makes me a Floridicua!

|No.3 Sedum rubrotinctum
No.8 reminds me of Sedum reflexum (synonym Sedum rupestre). But I'm not sure
No.10 Rosette plants are Sempervivum.
Soil must have very good drainage. Do not over wet.

No.1 I think it is Crassula ovata.
Maybe Crassula ovata cv.minima http://www.bidorbuy.co.za/item... (photo at the bottom of the page)
Take a look and in Plant Database. Especially to pictures submit by Pia Louise :
