Many kind thanks in advance !

First one looks like a etiolated sedum hernandezii. It should bloom yellow. This is not a firm ID.

I hate to contradict Mara who is very knowledgeable, but that's an etiolated Sedum furfurfaceum.
S. hernandezii has bigger leaves that are a brighter green.

Jay, this little guy will do well in outdoor shade/partial sun, or grow very compact with a little more sun. It looks like about 6 cuttings. I've had better luck with them being separated.

As I said, "not a firm ID". I stand corrected with full knowledge of my fallibility.
