Rina,

I don't confidently ID any of the NWC hybrids anymore, so can't help with that (often you need flowers to confirm the ID, as you likely know) but that seems to me to be Crassula ovata 'Gollum'. It's good you have new growth on them - it shows you're doing things right(ly).

I have this jade - didn't have nametag, so it is a 'variegated jade' for now.


Photobucket Photobucket

It didn't grow that much since I got it, but there is a lot of new leaves comming in now. Few almost white tips are slightly more yellow, they also have new leaves growing.

Would someone know correct name of it?

Would that be a Crassula ovata ssp. obliqua f. variegata cv. 'Tricolor'?

Pretty jade. Lucky to have one that large!

RE: Then and now - & some ID's please

Would one of these be correct?
Echeveria 'Perle von Nurnberg' or xGraptoveria 'Fred Ives' or Echeveria gibbiflora metallica

Then:


Echeveria 'Perle von Nurnberg'  or  xGraptoveria 'Fred Ives'  or  Echeveria gibbiflora metallica

Now, with some babies:

Not 'Fred Ives'--looks to me like 'Perle von Nurnberg,' but that E. gibbiflora I don't know too well.

Thank you again.
I tried to ID it, thought that it looks most like 'Perle', but I am still finding it difficult to differentiate.

It looks like E. Perle vom nurnburg to me. I have a couple. It ca get quite large when happy. I have now cut it back. It got really long in the trunk and the rosette had shrunk up considerably after blooming three times.

They look beautiful, all of them. Succulents, and the rocks too.
I can see benefit of Tx sun (you are keeping them in full sun, are you?)
They all are 'plump', how much water they receive?

No mostly they were grown in bright light and part shade with shafts of light. I moved it to morning light and bright light but now the sun is getting lower and it is all sun till late afternoon. It is still close to 100 , so I think I will move the table back. Texas sun is evil and I think Echeverias and many succulents are not up to it. I water once a week. Also they got long in the trunk and one rosette was getting smaller so I cut it off and it is rooting and the remaining trunk has pushed out two tiny rosettes that have not . They are not what they used to be. the beautiful picture was taken last fall.

You can see the tiny rosettes on the the remaining stump at the center botom of the arch. they do not look likr they are enjoying the Texas sun.

The top rooted rosette is growing in part shade, a bright shade and is flowering already, again.
