That's how it starts...
by: Jacki

You start with one, then think, oh I like that - it's so easy to grow, and before you know it, your collection numbers in the hundreds. Welcome to our obsession!

Your plants are 1) as you say, a grafted cactus (not my field of expertise, so I can't help there) then going clockwise; b) a Pachyveria; c) Echeveria 'Perle von Nurnberg' and finally; c) another Echeveria which I'm not certain of the species or variety.

your unlabeled succulents
by: anja

the grafted cactus is known as Gymnocalycium mihanovichii 'Hibotan' or moon cactus - the top cactus is made in Japan and cannot grow because lacks the ability to get nutrients from soil itself. This is the reason why it's grafted to the other cactus which are relatively short lived. I suggest grafting the upper cactus to another cactus that is longer lived. T

he succulent that is counter clock wise to that looks to be to be a Echeveria 'Lola' which is a hybrid of E.lilancina and E. derengerii and the succulent that's clockwise of the 'Hibotan' looks to be a succulent known as Little Jewel. hopes this helps :)

Not sure about the red one, but the others are usually called "Hens and Chickens". Don't ask me why.
