Need help with ID of succulents.

Posted by eclipse3 3 (My Page) on

I just got these two little succ at walmart today, and I would like a little help in figuring out what they are. After searching the net, the one looks to me like a hawarthia of some sort, but I could be wrong. The one I really can't figure out is the crazy stick looking one. I couldn't find anything similar. They come from the kactus korral, but unfortunately, they don't show pics of their different varieties on their website. TIA

The one in the foreground is definitely a Haworthia.

The one at the back looks like a rhipsalidopsis rosea

RE: Need help with ID of succulents.

No, definately not that. I checked that one out, and other rhipsalidopsis species, but nothing close. These are more woody for the stalks, and they are not flat or spikey. I saw another one at the store that had a very thin, long shoot with a flower bud at the end of it. I might have to buy it just to see what the flower looks like. It doesn't look like it will be anything spectacular, but it might help with ID. Thanks for the attempt:o)

RE: Need help with ID of succulents.

I believe the one in the back is Tylecodon sinus alexandri - just a bit out of leaf. This one may be summer dormant, but I am not sure. Somebody here will probably know.
