Hi all.

I received a lot of succulents from a neighbor which I would like to propagate and also plant out but we don't know the names of them.

I am am happy to do my research on them but was wondering if people could help identify them for me please so I have a starting point?

Many thanks

Indeed! I get about 6 letters into the other name and skip ahead to the next word. Smiling Thanks to the miracle of copy and paste, I don't even have to know how to spell it.

Hi & welcome! Your neighbor rocks! You can't do better than advice from someone in the exact same area, and with such awesome plants growing well enough to yield cuttings to share. I would encourage you to communicate with the giver of such great gifts, and invite him or her to come hang out with us here on this site.

1 The way the leaves clasp the stem seems unlike other Peps I've seen but that would be a very small number in the face of a genus with about 1,000 members.
2 Agree: Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe humilis)
3 (& 9) Agree: Elephant Bush (Portulacaria afra)
4 Look at: Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe citrina)
and: Lavender Scallops (Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi)
5 (& 10) Agree: Baby Sunrose (Mesembryanthemum cordifolium)
6 one of MANY Plectranthus: https://garden.org/plants/sear...
7 Agree: Purple Queen (Tradescantia pallida)
8 Agree: Inch Plant (Tradescantia zebrina)
11 very interesting! Anacampseros? something-ularia?
12 I think: Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe hildebrandtii)
13 Agree: Aloe (Aloe juvenna)
14 Agree, the species: Devil's Backbone (Euphorbia tithymaloides)

Great haul! And great neighbor! I'm sure they will also be helpful with plant issues.

Great IDs on all these pretty plants and Welcome!
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.
