Aloe, Jade, Cacti ID help

seanseansean(8b)October 26, 2013

So, I bought these three fellows off craigslist and they're in a generic peaty MG sort of mix which they don't seem too pleased with. I may be attributing some stress of the move to their mix but so be it.
I had figured the big boy in the back to be a pencil cactus but now that I've got him home Im leaning towards a rhipsalis although i can't find a picture of one similar to him. Perhaps they're all a bit sad to be in MG.

I thought the jade to be Gollum but its leaves are tapering off unlike my other gollum. No clue on the aloe, it reminds me of guys i've seen in the store though, thought i might be able to find some help here.

Once again sideways pictures are tough and somewhat blurred. The jade looks like either 'Hobbit' or "Gollum'. The Aloe with the stripes is not an Aloe but Haworthia fasiculata. The plant in the foreground in front of the Haworthia appears to bb another Haworthia.

The Jade is indeed one variation of the Finger Jade. In this case, with the tapering leaves, I think we can safely call it 'Skinny Fingers.'

And they all need lots more sun.

I think Haworthia is attenuata, not fasciculata (or whatever was meant there).

Is the Rhipsalis part of this pic or not? All the pokey people fall all over each other with the Haw, the Crassulas, etc. The Rhipsalis wrote me last night feeling slighted. Can we send some love to the silent Rhip?

Thank you so much, Skinny finger jade and a haworthia attenuata.

Dzitmoidonc, yes the Rhipsali is included. With what name did the Rhip sign the correspondence? Let's show it a little love :)
