I bought this basket of succulents at the grocery store and they are beautiful. I have yellow, orange and red flowers. The flowers are amazing. What are they, and how can I care for them?

Helping other people identify succulents is one of my favorite aspects. But I don't know every species/variety/cultivar. I have 6 videos of unidentified succulents of my own on YouTube.

What a fabulous name - that describes this gorgeous plant exactly!

Thanks again, Surroundx - any time you want a job, just come back here and identify all the lost succulents!

I'm not sure, but these almost look like Portulaca, which has flowers similar to these, in a cup shape and in many different colours. From the picture, these are a bit bigger than the common annual type, but there are other ones that get bigger and are perennial. Hope you can keep these growing and flowering the way they are - they're beautiful!
