IDs please?

First off, a 5-foot-tall something I got at a wholesaler for $10 (!):


And lastly, a box of little ones my mother has bought over the past couple of months:

Any ideas?

RE: IDs please?

I believe your 5-footer is Kalanchoe pinnata (previously in the genus Bryophyllum).

2nd one is a bit of a mystery...looks like a cross. Seems to have one of more of the following in it: Pachyphytum, Graptopetalum, Echeveria, Sedum. If/when it flowers, please come back & post~might be able to nail it down then.

In your group, the whole back row are Crassula, looks like to me, left to right: C. 'Springtime', C. conjuncta, not sure which Crassula-are the leaves smooth or hairy?, C. arborescens v. undulatifolia.

Front row, l to r, Sedum lineare f. variegata, somewhat like Crassula mesembryanthemoides-but need to see detail pic of leaves, please, Aptenia cordifolia-variegated (might be a named variety).

RE: IDs please?

Okay, I've finally gotten a closeup of the front row, middle Crassula online:

Also, the third place, back row Crassula's leaves are smooth, but the edges are almost serrated, but too finely to be seen unless one looks very closely.

RE: IDs please?

Thanks for the additional pix! :) Middle front row (lg photo you've provided) looks like Crassula pubescens.

Other, smooth-leaved one in back could be a form of Crassula nudicaulis. Hard to say, without a closer view. Are there hairs (cilia) on the leaf edges, or a saw-tooth shape (serrated)?
