|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 :
