Can we see another pic of the Aloe-whole thing? Has it ever bloomed?

The other is Pachy-something. My brain won't kick in at the moment. I'll be back! =)

#1 NoID Aloe - photo of whole plant outside in full sun (leaves darker); so far it didn't bloom, just getting too many pups:

#1 looks like my A. grandidentata...but I'm sure it could be argued. It's a heavy-pupper for me!

Agree with Rosemarie about the Grapto-something. The last one is Haworthia cymbiformis variegata

I don't know if it's on the market or not, but your #2 looks something like xGraptophytum 'Amphitryon'. Parentage : (Graptopetalum amethystinum x Pachyphytum glutinicaule)

I think Howard has it on the Haworthia! =) Tricked me...maybe without the rocks, the rosette would flatten out a little.

Here is a link that might be useful: xGraptophytum 'Amphitryon'

Rosemarie & Howard

Thank you for your efforts.
I have another one that you ID as Haworthia cymbiformis variegata (#4).
Not sure if you could tell from the photo, but leaves on mine look to me thinner (not as succulent/chubby as the photos on web). They have few tiny teeth (that's why I thought it was aloe), and it looks like they have tight rosette, but mine seems to be growing up like a stem (it may be etoliated?)

Aloe #1 could be many things, but most likely maculata (aka saponaria).. Aloe #3 is most likely Aloe claviflora or falcata, with a few less likely possibilities such as pachygaster or maybe namibensis... however these last two are pretty uncommon in cultivation. All look basically very similar, though flowers will help distinguish most, or mature leaf patterns.

Rina, this is my Haworthia... that yours has small spines on the leaf edges does raise some question as to the ID but I am not familiar enough with the Aloe genus to know if there is a "look a like".

Rina, the last pic you show of the variegated guy does tend to look more like an Aloe (teeth on edges, but Haws have them as well). The other pic, showing thin leaves~seemed like you could see through them, making me think Haworthia. Not so sure it would be A. nobilis, but that is a possibility. Yes, also possible it is etiolated. Wait till it grows a bit & we can have another crack at it! =)

I also agreed with Geoff, that #1 Aloe could be maculata.

I thought of a slightly stretched variegated Alworthia 'Black Gem.' I really don't know what I'm talking about, but it doesn't strike me as a Haw somehow with the leaf shape and how they're sticking upward. The base of the second variegated guy pictured really strikes me as an Aloe--hrmm--but I don't want to ruffle any feathers by saying! :)

Thank you for the photo -beautiful plant-,it shows what I mean by 'succulent' leaves, on mine they are not. Hope it will be easier to ID as it grow.

Thank you to everyone for commenting.
