Good afternoon,

How great to find a place where plant-happy folks can inspire and help me with my newfound enthusiasm!

I have had plants for years, and have slowly gotten better at not killing them. Now that I am really getting into it, I would really like to know more about my plants so I can give them the best care.

My guess is these are all succulents, but perhaps I am wrong? I would really appreciate to hear any ideas or thoughts you might have, also on the care-taking of these plants. The first one especially seems to be doing quite well, it's growing a lot! So should I put it in a bigger pot? Or wait for summer to do so?

Thank you kindly in advance for your help!

I just spend several hours Googling, and could this be a Haworthia cuspidata? Or Haworthia cymbiformis?

Couldn't find any information about this little guy!

And I am wondering whether this is a baby Echeveria agavoides miranda..?


Thanks again! Looking forward to your suggestions :)

Yes, they are all succulents. The first plant is a windowed Haworthia but I could not tell you which one. I have never seen that much Haworthia in so small a pot. Smiling You can repot it at any time, given mild temperatures and strong light. You might consider a pot 2-3 times that wide to start with. Make sure it has holes at the bottom. Try not to disturb the roots too much. Use fast draining soil (for example 50% pumice, perlite or equivalent) and do not water for a week after repotting. Provide the strongest light possible if the plant is going to be indoors. Like right by your sunniest window, ideally.

The last two plants look like Echeverias. They look like agavoides or maybe hybrids of agavoides. They should make pretty small flowers. The shape of the leaves is the main clue but actually if you look closely in the picture you can see the leaf surfaces have a mosaic like pattern of tiny repeating units, like tile almost, which is something you sometimes can see in Echeveria macro pictures.

Both of them are ready for bigger pots, but you can wait until spring if you like. Usually use a pot that is just wider than the rosette to start with, so it has room to get bigger. That allows you to water more easily, too. They will reach 20-25 cm max in good strong light and probably never need a pot bigger than 20cm unless they offset like crazy.

You can move all of these plants outside in the spring when temperatures are mild if you like. Just be very careful going from indoor sun to outdoor sun. The difference mostly has to do with the fact that regular window glass absorbs most of the harmful UV rays in sunlight, so indoor sun is much much kinder. So if you want to move your plants outside, start in bright shade (lots of reflected/scattered light) or filtered light. Then after a week or two move them to a little morning sun maybe, and so on. Over the course of weeks your plants will have a chance to develop some resistance to outdoor sunlight. When they are well adjusted they should be able to take a few hours of direct sun no problem, but probably less than half a day.

Welcome!

Wow! Look at that reply and all of that information! Soo good :D

@DaisyI Thank you very much for alerting the succulent specialist to my post!

And @Baja_Costero; again, wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my questions, and in such detail! You really know a lรณt about succulents. It is inspiring to see how you are clearly very enthusiastic about them and how much knowledge you have gathered over time. I very much appreciate how willingly you share that with the 'newbie's' ;). Hopefully one day I will know just as much about my little plants. I am excited to repot them soon and give them lots more space! Many thanks again, and until next time!

Thank You!
