This first little herby plant is at the base of a ponytail palm I recently got at Lowe's.

This second hitchhiker has obscure origins. It is a succulent of some sort and it has been in my possession for at least a year but I can't remember if it came in on a geranium, gasteria, sanseveiria, or a spaceship. The leaves are about the size of a pencil lead. They are almost microscopic they are soooo tiny.

At first I thought the yellow leaves were over-watered and would fall off, but they just never have. I am guessing there is something about the variety where some of the leaves are yellow.

I have ideas but I'd appreciate identity confirmation of either one!
Keep going!

I love them both! Have they ever bloomed?

#1 pilea microphylla
#2 some kind of Sedum {like sedum album (Baby Tears)} I guess, sometimes appear as bonus when you bought succulent, since they are so small and easily broken ended up in other succulent container.

Thank you. Those were my guesses too.

Neither has bloomed but they remind me of duckweed I've grown for ages. It's the world's smallest flowering plant so you wouldn't even know if it blooms.
Keep going!
