Hello everyone. Smiling

I've discovered a new succulent & cactus greenhouse, beautiful café, and olive oil tasting studio, all in one. l have fallen in love with it, and want to go back all the time. Hurray!

Most of their plants are labelled well, but a few I couldn't get a name for. Anyone recognize any of these guys? Crossing Fingers!

You might have to go back for more. Smiling

#4 is one of my favorites, a Mexican plant, Echeveria agavoides. Great color with direct sun (red highlights on the leaves = good light). Watch the inflorescences for bugs. You can separate the big offset if you desire. I would use a nail scissor and come in from the side, so that you get a reasonable amount of stem. Anyway that's a sun worshipper in our mild climate, so you know.

Hehe... I heard about the place at the beginning of April and have gone 3 times since. Probably brought home 15 -20 plants since the start.

Thank you! I was planning on separating them, but was intimidated by how strong the leaves / stem are, especially in comparison to all my little succulents I've been more familiar with. I probably will though when I'm feeling scissor happy and beheading plants. :nodding:

I also noticed the one leaf on the bottom right that's all purple, almost black. Is that a worry or just a random thing that happens on these guys?

Thanks! As I was posting this I was also wondering if #5 was some sort of Aloe. Sticking tongue out

Last two plants also look like Echeverias. Second is one of a few with surface hairs, maybe leucotricha or a hybrid. Those are also Mexican plants and they should make pretty flowers.

As for the bottom leaves turning dark colors, most of the time that's just the normal process of senescence as lower leaves dry up. By way of illustration here is an older pot-bound plant which is sitting on a pretty fat stack of dead leaves. As Echeverias go, these make pretty short stems, but they will eventually grow one given enough time.

Here is a second plant which is growing in a larger pot (8" instead of 6") and getting lots of sun (rooftop patio).

There are different versions of the plant including this narrow leafed example, which also develops the red color.

In our mild climate these plants are free to offset whenever they like but early spring seems to be the time. I like the solitary look (partly because my plants are in small pots) but it's still fun to wean a litter each year. Smiling

The Aloe may be A. noblis (gold tooth aloe)
the next photo is Echeveria prolifica
and it is very prolific just like its name.
The last one is Echeveria setosa.
