A few IDs please!

Been given a fair few cuttings and babies over the last year and would like to put a name to them all if possible!

First off, is this some kind of Kalanchoe? It has furry leaves if that helps:

Another Kalanchoe but not sure of species?

Some kind of Euphorbia I assume?

Found this cactus outside someone's house. They had left it to die so I snapped off the most healthy part!

Thanks everyone!

4. Peperomia ferreyrae or something similar.

5. I'd guess a Monadenium/Euphorbia. Monadenium ellenbeckii seems about right.

6. Some kind of epiphytic cactus. Looks like it was used as the root stock in a graft cactus? Don't know the genus -- try googling Pitaya.

#1 probably K. beharensis; #2 K. daigremontiana; #5 Senecio mweroensis saginata. Yale

I agree with several of the IDs given. :)

1. Kalanchoe beharensis
2. Kalanchoe daigremontiana
3. Rhipsalis baccifera ssp. horrida
4. Peperomia ferreyrae -looks closest to me
5. don't know - looks somewhat like 2 others suggested
6. could be Hylocereus undatus (yes, used in grafting)

(Crawling to the keyboard. Raising hand out of range of camera so nobody can see. Drinks a shot of rotgut Bourbon to steady his nerves before he raises an objection.)

RoRo, unless the pot in #3 is one inch dia., I doubt that is a Rhipsalis. Maybe a somewhat etiolated Chamaecereus silvestrii?

Always good to hear from you RoRo. It makes things right with the world.

I see you raising your hand, Dzitmo!! Hee hee! Good catch! I was in too much of a hurry to take that ot size into consideration! So, no...not the Rhipsalis I thought on #3. =) Your suggestion is MUCH better!
