Although I don't know what either of these plants are, I'm really wondering what the plant on the right is. It has very green thin (both in flatness and width) leaves that are smooth until the tip, where it splits into three points. The leaves grow off the stem -- not from a central hub. Any help? It was in a pot of succulents I bought at the farmer's market, so I'm not sure if it's a weed or a succulent...

Welcome! to NGA

It depends upon your definition of 'weed'. Smiling Its a Kalanchoe, common name "Mother of Thousands".

@DaisyI Thank you!!! But Google images shows Kalanchoe babies have roundish leaves with jagged edges all around. Is mine an uncommon variation?

Agree with Daisy it is Kalanchoe Mother of Thousands. Those little babies at the tips will eventually drop and you will have a new batch of new kalanchoes. Some growers like them, others hate them since they easily get into other containers, and grow like weeds, and rather hard to eradicate. If you intend to keep it, I would move it separately on its own container, it can easily over run the container.

I have mine outdoors in containers, and our mild winter cold controls their growth, thankfully.

Maybe Kalanchoe delagoensis



I've tried to put a database link here but for some reason I'm not able to copy/paste links today ... may be an issue with my laptop.
