Hi everyone!

A local nursery that I have never been to had their succulents half off....and the majority of them really were not in great shape. I did buy a couple, including these two, to try and save. The first isn't bad but the second is really elongated.

Any IDs please? Thank you!!!

First one looks like Echeveria runyonii 'Topsy Turvy'

Last one resembles Crassula capitella 'Campfire', hope it blooms so we can further confirm it. Observe too if it grows vining.

I agree with the Crassula ID. I have that one and it's a match. I'm not sure about the first one. Here is topsy turvy and it doesn't seem to be the same.

It is Topsy Turvy. The shape of the leaves is really distinctive for an Echeveria. It will recover just fine... looks like flowers on the way. Summer is flower time for Topsy Turvy and the show is pretty good. Hummingbirds like it too.

Echeveria (Echeveria runyonii 'Topsy Turvy')
