So I finally have the space needed to keep plants... and the only place in my area this time of year which has plants is a Wal-mart. I picked up a few which were already listed, or I already knew wht they were... But these two had tags that labelled them simply as "assorted succulents and cacti"

I'm not sure what they are-- one is in decent shape, the other is kinda measly and weak. I wanna save them, they've been transplanted because they were in containers which were falling apart. Also I'm not sure what they are-- the measly one looks a bit like a tiny jade plant... but I'm not sure.

This one is about 2-3 inches high;

and this one is 3 inches wide or so

Both have smooth textured skin.

A variegated Portulacaria afra, perhaps? And an Echeveria.

Elephant Bush (Portulacaria afra 'Variegata')
Echeverias (Echeveria)

Both will enjoy strong light indoors, especially the Echeveria. Right by a sunny window would be ideal.
