I recently acquired a number of succulents that I cannot identify. I would like to give them the best care possible and I particularly like researching the plants that I own. Can anyone help me identify any of these?

Hi Nessie, Welcome!
My eyes aren't the best but I'll make a few suggestions for comparison.

Back left Smooth Agave (Agave de-meesteriana 'Variegata')
Back right?? I can't see it well enough to make a guess
Center right Lavender Scallops (Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi)
Front right, maybe a variety of Echeveria: http://garden.org/plants/searc...
Front left may be Flapjacks (Kalanchoe luciae)
Center right - Aloe? http://garden.org/plants/searc...
Center front, maybe Jade Plant (Crassula ovata)

Hopefully others will pop in soon with their thoughts and suggestions.

I agree with most of those IDs. Front left looks like Crassula perfoliata (aka falcata) or a close relative. If that's what it is, the plant makes bright red flowers in summer and becomes a bug magnet at that time, so be vigilant.



As is often the case when they are in mixed plantings, the agave will take over the pot in relatively short order. I would separate it in the near future, perhaps in the spring. It will probably appreciate more light than the other plants anyway. It has a wonderful urn-like sculptural shape when allowed to grow freely, accented by those variegated borders.

Gray pink Echiveria looks like pearl von nuremberg. Compact in green house, and looses that a little in my house.
