Hi, I'm very new and have only been getting my hands in the dirt for about 2 years.
I absolutely love succulents, I purchased a few yesterday and was having trouble identifying them.
Hope you can help!

Welcome! Suzy!
That is a nice selection. I think no. 3 is a variegated Portulacaria afra.

Thank You!
I couldn't pass them up for the low price.
My center piece is flapjacks, never seen it before and I couldn't leave it.

Suzy, have you taken a look at our special forum for Cactus and Tender Succulents ? I'm sure the folks over there will know all your plants, and also have lots of advice for you on growing them.

Hello Suzy!

#6 is Crassula muscosa pseudolycopodiodes - commonly called as watch chain

#4 looks like Crassula perforata

#3 - agree with Hetty's id on it of Portulacaria afra variegated

#1 and #2 - to me it looks like some type of sedum

#5 sorry don't know Shrug!

No, not a donkey tail.

Donkey tail or Sedum morganianum looks like this: the one that is hanging down

Could #5 be a young plant of Echeveria nodulosa?


#1 looks familiar, but I can't place it at this time.

You are welcome Suzy. I would love to see your plant #5 when it has grown, so we can tell for sure if it is E. nodulosa.

By the way, Welcome! to ATP. So glad you found your way here. Hurray!

#5 is Senecio crassissimus.
Lavender Steps (Senecio crassissimus)

#1 may be a Sedeveria or Graptoveria hybrid.

All of you have been incredibly helpful & I really appreciate it!
I have just one more plant that I've had for a few months & I'm just not sure what its correct name is, I grabbed it out of my great grandfathers garden when I went down to Florida.
I know its a cactus, its velvety & its growing fairly quick!

A Stapelia of some sort. You will have to wait for a flower to know for sure. If its growing fast and gets large, it may be Stapelia gigantea.

Hi Suzy, just remembered your #1 for id succulent..I knew I have seen it before, and looking at my plants outdoors, I think your plant is Graptosedum Vera Higgins.

This is how my Graptosedum Vera Higgins look like:

Graptosedum, that was the other one I wanted to suggest but couldn't think of it. I have 'Vera Higgins' too!
Graptosedum (XGraptosedum 'Bronze')

So I went back to the garden center a few days ago and I looked for #1, I found the tag & it says its "Jet Beads" -Sedeveria
