The first one may be Pleiospilos. I don't think they are supposed to be that stretched out though.

The second one is Aeonium Sunburst.

Thats what I thought about the first one too! But thats how they all were at the greenhouse that sold them! They had the regular looking ones too. I should have asked them what species it was!

Thanks (:

#1 is an ice plant from the same family as Pleiospilos, if it's not actually Pleiospilos. It looks like it would form a mat if you had it in the ground. Like branching stems that grow along the top of the soil, rooting as they go. I would allow it to grow sideways if that's what it wants to do.

The second plant is not Sunburst, which makes bigger leaves and rosettes, at least by the time it is branching. Take a look at Kiwi. The variegation is not a perfect match to my eye, but it's in that ballpark. The variegated Aeoniums tend to morph a bit some times.

Still no luck pinpointing the species! I might make a trip back to the greenhouse and ask them if they know what it is!

Works for me, but I'm no expert. Smiling If that's what it is, the new name is Corpuscularia...

ACTUALLY I discovered that it is C. taylorii. taylorri is different than lehmannii because it has longer internodes whereas lehmannii is more compact. I am so excited!
