The photos show the same NOID succulent but the last photo shows two NOID succulents. So far, the two guesses on that succulent in all the photos is Sedum nussbaumerianum and graptosedum. No guesses so far on that other succulent in the last photo, but because of its distinct leaf form and growing pattern, it might be pretty easy to ID.

Are you trying to ID 2 or 3 diff kinds of plants? Compare the darker plant in the last pot to this one:
Peperomia verticillata

Tiffany, I have gobs of plants, all growing alongside each other. You can see bits and pieces of other plants, plants like orchids, fiddle leaf ficus seedlings, Nepenthes (carnivore), and even a staghorn frond. I don't know where you see any plant in these six photos like that Peperomia though.

That plant looks really familiar. I think someone posted one to ID a couple weeks ago and I said it was a Euphorbia and then someone came along and corrected me. So....

It looks like a Euphorbia. Smiling

How about the Euphorbia myrsinites, "Donkey Tail Spurge"?

That's what I thought at first too but all your leaves face downwards. The euphorbia sticks out or upward. You can always snap off a piece, see if it has a milky sap.

No, Sue, all those stems grow upwards, not downwards, at least on which I think is the Euphorbia. Here's that photo with the two different succulents.

I thought that too but didn't suggest Euphorbia because there was no mention of white sap.

I haven't touched and hardly even noticed this planting since fall, when it got put in a far corner of a greenhouse. I assume it exudes white sap when a leaf is pinched off, but don't know.

Ken, you got the name right for that plant growing with your other succulents in the last photo, Euphorbia myrsinites, it is a spurge type Euphorbia.
Here is a link and shows the yellow blooms too: http://www.thehappygardeners.c...

Thanks, Tarev. That plant was easy to ID. The other is apparently graptopetalum or graptosedum. I cannot tell a bit of difference between either one, at least not from all the photos available on Google Images.

One thing seems certain..it has some grapto in those. Hope it makes some blooms later, maybe if positioned later in full sun, it may try.

They will all go outside as soon as the lows remain above 50F, Tarev. They'll get full sun. Are you saying that the flowers of the graptopetalum and graptosedum are different and that difference tells the tale?

Yes, they will have different growth style and colors. So if I have such an unknown plant and it starts producing buds, I take photos often, just to make a good comparison later how it grows.

I was looking at the leaves, they all seem to laying flat against the stem, facing downwards but that could be because of the crowded pot conditions. Should be planted in the ground, in full sun.

Anyway, we have tons of wonderful shots in our database of Donkey Tail (Euphorbia myrsinites)

The Euphorbia would never have to go inside; I have it growing in my yard. Its hardy to many degrees below zero.

You may want to keep it in a pot just to keep in under control. But we still don't know for sure that it is a Euphorbia. Go poke it with a stick and see what color it bleeds.

It may take the cold but I can't, Daisy. I will "poke" it tomorrow. I'm old. Would you want me to die of hypothermia? Sticking tongue out
