Hi there!

I recently built this terrarium out of some plants and moss I found around my campus (in Massachusetts). I found these plants in an abandoned planter outside of a greenhouse which lead me to believe that they were just weeds, if thats true, they're some pretty weeds! There are 3-4 different types of plants and I was wondering if any of y'all could help me identify them. I can upload better pictures if need be.

Thanks a ton! Acorn

The definition of 'weed' is a plant that is growing were it shouldn't be. So, if you found a beautiful rose in the middle of your vegetable garden, by definition, it would be a weed. Smiling

Those are all succulents that, apparently, are hardy outside in your area. You didn't mention where that is.

The photos are good enough to ID the plants but I'm really not good at succulent identification. Let me give it a try: The one on the far left may be Jelly Bean Plant, next, maybe Kalanchoe, still traveling right, stonecrop?

Someone will be along shortly with some answers. In the mean time, please fill in the rest of your data so we know where these plants are located.

Thank You!
I go to school in central Massachusetts so naturally occurring succulents are definitely a rarity!
