Hello you wonderful plant parents! I was looking for some help in identifying some plants my friend purchased today? Neither of us know anything about these little guys, but we wanna take care of them and the first step is finding out what kind of plants they are! We couldn't find anything from google, (Not particularly sure exactly what to type in for that kinda stuff D'Oh! ) and I figured why not turn to online databases for help? The photo attached is the babies in question, and any help would be greatly appreciated!! Lovey dubby

The photos are not light enough to really see. How big are the pots? Can you take another photo in a brighter location?

They are both succulents, the one in the yellow pot looks like a type of Jade, do the pots have drainage holes? You must be very careful watering succulents, they can get root rot easily if they sit in soggy soil, since your in Jersey plan on re-potting in the late Spring, go 1 size up and use a good potting soil and add perlite, I've been using Miracle Grow potting mix for over 30 years and I've never had any issues. Hope this helps, Good Luck with your new babies, they are adorable
Edited to correct my error, its a type a Jade, I stand corrected

The one in the yellow pot may be a Jade, for sure not an Aloe. The one in the brown pot may be an Echeveria or something close. Better photos please.

I don't think they need bigger pots, just brighter circumstances.

Neither is an Aloe. You could try asking on the Cacti & Succulent forum.
