Last summer & now this one.

Hi, I have two succulents that I have no idea what they are. I would appreciate any assistance you may be able to provide. The first is the green bushy type plant. It sits 18" above the pot & has long skinny leaves. I've had this plant for 1.5 years. This is it's 2nd season outside. I will say it did not like being indoors this past winter.

The 2nd are the pale blue, green type. they each stand 14-15" above the pots & have 3.5" L x 2.5"w at the widest leaves. I purchased them about a month ago & at the time they were only 1.5" total length. As you can see they are now huge. The leaves are firm without being mushy. They are branching out as you can see.

All of these are on the east side of the house with late afternoon shade. They love it there. When I bring them in they also remain on the east facing windows. I hope I am caring for them properly since I have no clue what they are.

I'm located in Wichita, Ks. Zone 6b.

Thank you in advance.

Michelle

ps. I have well over 100 succlents & cacti.

Not sure

These look like they could be some kind of Crassula, like a variety of Jade. Without more details of the actual leaves it's impossible to tell. If the leaves have pores all over them, then it's likely to be a Crassula. Sorry I can't help more, the pictures are good, but not close enough to see.

Yep, looks like jade

I had a jade that got long and lanky because it wasn’t getting enough sun. And the leaves would lose their plump look if it wasn’t watered a bit more than some of my other succs. Once I got those adjusted and encouraged it to get bushy with a little selective pinching, it got all fat and happy. When I moved out of state I had to give it to my sister, too heavy for me to wrangle!
