Thought I'd post a few of my plants that I haven't felt 100% sure of, for some ID confirmations. Any assistance is much appreciated. Smiling

1. Opuntia humifusa? Pardon the wrinkles. This guy's due for another good watering.
(I've worn a significant number of glochids from this fellow Blinking )

2. Opuntia macrocentra?

3. Rhombophyllum dolabriforme?

4. Aeonium decorum?

Thumb of 2020-05-01/Macrocentra/958eeb
5. Senecio barbertonicus, or Peperomia ferreyrae?
Leaves are usually much more plump. Like green beans. Also due for a good watering.

6. Opuntia basilaris?

7. Cereus aethiops?

1. I agree probably O. humifusa
2. Seems to fit with macrocentra, though some pads look a little off... but that could be growing conditions.
6. is Opuntia microdasys possibly a slightly crested version
7. is Stetsonia coryne

The other plants are outside of my knowledge base.

It is what it is!

Thanks, guys. Smiling

I'll get a new picture of the first Opuntia as soon as it plumps back up again.

Your opuntia may not plump up until it "wants" to. It may be dry looking because it's dormant. I have some planted outdoors in my rock garden. Right now they look like yours does.

I think it is dormant. It did that near the beginning of winter and has looked the same since. I don't water much in the winter as most of them go dormant. I did water it not too long ago as well, and it still looks that way. So I think it's staying dormant for now. Our season here has also been colder than usual.

Everyone got a thorough water when the semi-warm weather hit, and it's one of two that didn't plump back up to their pre-winter forms. May just need some more time. Smiling

you can put that one outside in a pot, if it's the same as mine, cold won't hurt it. Cold and wet will. I live in a similar climate as you. Mine spend all year outside.

Think it'd be okay? I've always been nervous to keep my cactuses outside with all the rain and jumping temperatures. So I haven't tried it so far.

Have you kept any other species outside with success?
