Are these two sempervivums different varieties or was the bottom one exposed to less sun?
Also, are there two types of cacti in the same pot, 'cause the pup/offshoot looks differenet(to me at least) than the "rest of the cactus"

It looks to me as if the golden barrel cactus (the smallest round one in the last two pictures) needs a little bit more sun. The spikes look brown to me. Maybe it's just the pictures?

Are the spikes more brown or more light yellow?

Yes, you have two different cactuses in there. The little one is a golden barrel. Not sure what those other two are though.

The sempervivums are also different I believe, because the spacing of the leaves on both are different, and their leaves look different in size as well.

I'm just not sure what their IDs are.

But, they could be the same, and it's just that one is more sun-stressed than the other, like you said.

Maybe the red ones are sempervivum bronco?

Thank you both for your help, the spikes are light yellow color, the lighting in the photos is not the best. I hope that they are different cause I like the contrast between lime green and burgundy red, so I hope he'll stay that way and not turn entirely into red Crossing Fingers!

Hi @Klara333
You do have two different sempervivum. Very different from each other. There is no way to attach a name to them as there are thousands of different named cultivars.
The bottom one looks to have S. tectorum breeding. Not sure about the top one.
