Identification help

Hello all,

I've just recently started getting into the world of succulents, and I spent the afternoon at a local nursery running around and picking my favourite out trays and trays of these amazing little gems. Anyway, I ended up taking home 6 of these little guys, and was hoping for some identification help; even genera would be useful. I like to look up the cultural info

Hopefully these are actually species and not weird unidentifiable hybrids.

Thanks for all the help!

RE: Identification help

The top left could be Adromischus maculatus and middle right might be Haworthia ratusa or possibly H. cooperi.
Bottom right could be a Pachyveria of some sort

RE: Identification help

Thanks for that - much appreciated. I'm really curious actually about middle left - it's a cute little pom pom..I'm wondering how big it gets.

RE: Identification help

Upper, left (purple) Gasteria species
Right of that, a Senecio
middle, left ~may be Echeveria minima
middle, right ~ Haworthia cymbiformis
bottom, left ~ Oscularia deltoides
Bottom, right ~can't think of at the moment (are there any hairs on it?)

RE: Identification help

Thanks so much!! The bottom right is pretty hairless

RE: Identification help

Thanks for checking. Bottom right, looks like it has an inflorescence. Is it in bud? Is there an open bloom or? Might be helpful to see it.
