All three…
by: Jacki

…are Echeveria. The first one I’m not sure of, but the middle one is Echeveria ‘Perle von Nurnberg’ and the third one looks like either Echeveria imbricata or Echeveria glauca possibly.

There are so many, and trying to identify them exactly is really difficult when they’re not showing their normal characteristics.

You can see more about how to grow them here.

In your climate, which is much more humid than these plants preference, you will have to be extremely careful not to overwater them. Also make sure that the soil is well drained, with lots of grit in it. That looks like part of the problem with especially the second one.

Hope that helps – good luck with your collection!

Not Graptopetalum?
by: Laura

I thought the first one were a Graptopetalum, possibly paraguayense. It has a thicker leaf then the Echeveria you link to, and it also seems to have more of a stem. To me, anyway.
