Looks like a Jade
some type of Echevaria
I can't locate this little palm looking plant

My wife picked up a plant with 4 types of succulents two years ago.

What appears to be the Sedum Nussbaumerianum has grown out of the pot with long stems. Rather than cut the heads and propergate, I bought a large saucer and let them do what they want to do.

I am pretty sure about the Sedum plant ID from the internet and one plant is growing right out of the middle of a stem. There are 3 others that I am not sure what they might be.

No Sedum there...
by: Jacki

Hi Lenny, I don't see any Sedum in there? I think what you have is a Pachyveria, which is the straggly looking blue one. There are a couple of different ones, so maybe look that up online. I've had one called Pachyveria 'Little Jewel' which you can see a picture of this about halfway down the page here.

The one you've labeled Jade, is in fact, Pachyphytum ovatum, otherwise called Sugared Almond.

The taller palm tree one is actually an Echeveria, this one is the species (or hybrid) set-oliver. You can see more about that here; Echeveria set-oliver.

The dark colored Echeveria looks to be Echeveria 'Black Prince'.

Hope that helps!
