New succulents

I went to go look at the veggie plants at HD and couldn't resist these three...

Portulacaria afra 'Variegata' (I have been looking for one of these)

Crassula obliqua 'Tricolor' (I spotted this guy hiding in the back)

Aloe Crosby's prolific...love his teeth!

Nice plants, Jessie!

I have an elephant bush too but it's not quite as upright. It's two y's. :) they're easy... I give it some direct sun and water every other week/when pretty damn dry.

I have been looking for a tricolor jade! Lucky you. And alpes are easy plants. They like to pup too.

Congrats on your new wards, Jessie! Glad to hear you found some you were looking for...always a thrill! :) Watch out for Aloe 'Crosby's Prolific'...it is aptly named. Soon you will have LOTS of pups!

They aren't anything exotic or super exciting, but they caught my eye :-) I have a reg. elephant bush, but really wanted a variegated. They jade is a little beat up, but it was the better of the two. I'm kind of scared of the aloe now lol Hopefully I'll have lots of people who want starts I guess :-)

Also...I found this inside of my Jade plant. I guess it dropped off. Didn't see anything like it close by. Any clue to what it is or if I could try to root it?

IMO it never hurts to TRY to root something, the worst that can happen is it won't take, no harm, no foul.

Don't know what it is, other than some kind of succulent, I'd plant it DRY, in fast draining mix, & don't water it. Fat, fleshy leaves don't need watering when they have no roots.

It looks like crassula gollum - maybe?
As PG says, try to root it.

Thanks pirate and rina :-)

Nope, not a gollum. These are more of a flat curved shape. I put some root tone on it and stuck it in a well draining mix that I have jade cuttings rooting in right now.

Jesse, that dropped leaf looks a lot like the one I bought at lowes a few months back (plant on left)? Not sure if it will root (my guess would be 'No'). I planted mine with the plant on right, and another haw, but it seems like it might be happier in another dish that gets more water.

I thought of Peperomia ferreryre too, but they have a "window" on top of the leaves; does your have them? I bought same two plants couple of weeks ago (except they did not have labels).
