Multiple Echeveria (?) a Gift from California
I believe these plants are echeveria as I have been trying to research all over for their names to better take care of them.
I got them from California and they were from cuttings from my Aunt's garden. They were so pretty and I really, really want them in my garden too. I was so glad to learn from my relative that I simply need to stick them to the ground as soon as I arrive from my flight to Florida. But after careful thinking, I really need to do careful research on the plants but do not have any knowledge on succulents and need help on identifying, transplanting from cuttings, care and maintenance especially with the weather in Florida. Any help would be much appreciated.
It's so nice to see someone who isn't afraid to jump in feet first!
Okay, starting at the top: 1) This is definitely some kind of Echeveria, however, they normally don't root from the stems of the flowers. You can take the leaves off, and that part will root, believe it or not. I can't see it well enough to tell you exactly which one, but I'm leaning towards Echeveria setosa or one of the hybrids of that, such as Echeveria set-oliver.
The second image is some kind of Crassula, which is also known as a noxious weed in some areas, as it reseeds itself prolifically. Sorry, again, don't know the exact species.
Numbers 3 and 4 are plants voted most likely to be mistaken for Echeveria; in fact, they're both Aeonium, a completely different genus. Although they are distantly related, being in the Crassulaceae, they require much different care. See more about them here: Aeonium.
