I think as I TRYED to find it.. Is a crassula rubrigaulis. I looked at pages of plants and this one is the best match. It has recieved some afternoon sun from my east window and the tips of the leaves are turning crisom or redish. neat..

I think this is a coral cactus...interesting blooms.  Every year it puts out these darling little pink flowers all along the tops..

Marlene, a succulent dish garden is a dish, somewhere from 6" to 12" wide, more or less, and 2" to 4" deep.  The object is to create a piece of art, combining plant selection, plant position, pot color and texture and size, along with any trinkets you choose to add.  Many people use pieces of fissilized wood, rocks with character, old bones or an appropriately colored and contoured dressing.  The sky is the limit; just try to choose plants with the same growth rate if you can.

Well I left one out.. normal.. This one is tall and no color but it has not seen any sun either.. I found one on line, a crassula capiltlla campfire. neat plant. torn up some but I will keep that one inside for now in a east window.

I rescued some cactus and succulents from WG the last few days AFTER I told my self NO more plants for inside!! Well darn they were 1.29 and needed me!! So I had to get some. 3x now.  2 different Barrols too but pics tomorrow.. They were not taged so I have NO idea what they are..  So one at a time..

ONE. Echeveria sp. or a Graptopetalum sp. ??  

Two: Twisted cactus like form.. lol.. Fake flower, HOW to remove??

Three: Lithops.. Bromfieldii I think. but menellii, maybe..

Here are a couple of plants I have that I don't have names for. If anyone knows the names of these I would really appreciate it.

Gorgeous blooms Mary. I'm sorry the squirrels chewed on your Lithop. I have the same problem with squirrels here. I have to keep all of my cacti and succulents in planters on tables that the squirrels can't climb up on or they would eat them all.

Oooh, love your Curly Locks Grant! I can't wait for mine to get that big. I planted 100 seeds so here's hoping that at least some of them make it to maturity. Here's an updated picture of my Curly Locks seedlings.

Thank you Nancy.

Boy, those squirrels do a lot of damage. I would have to figure out some way to get the better of them, instead of the other way around. Love you pictures, Mary. The Echinopsis subdenudata flowers are just beautiful!
