New guy trying to ID Collection (Succulents)

Postby jnspire » Mon Mar 26, 2012 12:06 am

NOTE: I will place the name of the identified plants in the comments. The unidentified plants I am still looking for the most specific name possible.

Hey all,
I posted all of my Cacti in the Cacti ID section... These are my succulents.
I appreciate any help identifying these. :)

Plant 2 Haworthia cymbiformis I'd say
Plant 4 is an Echeveria It could be even Echeveria 'Black prince' with no enough sun.
The last one is Crasula of some sort

I am thinking that the last one might be Crassula ovata or Crassula Argentea. Any thoughts?

First is a Fenestraria
2nd Haworthia cymbiformis
3rd-Echeveria, don't know which species (but 'Black Prince' is a possibility)
4th-at 1st thought a Bulbine, but see thin leaves with groove & you say Tillandsia, so I guess not! Ha ha
Last does look like a Crassula. Could be C. ovata (argentea is a synonym). See how it grows.

I believe you ment 4th is Echeveria. For 3rd is tillandsia for sure.

You guys are awesome! :)
Thank you for all of your help...
I didn't know that ovata and Argentea were the same thing... I'll remember that.

I have been digging a little deeper into identifying my Tilandsia. I think that it may be a T. ixioides
But, I would still like confirmation.

Your supposed Tillandsia doesn't look at all grey~seems all green to me, so I don't think that's it (besides not having the look of T. ixoides habit). Are the leaves grey or stiff? Are they rough, scratchy, have pokeys on the edges? You may need to wait till you see it flower to determine its ID.

What I believe to be a Tilandsia was sold at a greenhouse as an "Airplant". It has a slightly dusty light green coloration. The leaves are in fact stiff. The surface of the leaves is not smooth but has an appearance of grit like a very (nearly micro) fine sandpaper; however, due to the concave shape of the leaves I cannot tell if they are "scratchy". The edges come to a very "pokey" point but there are no protruding spines coming from them (as this is the implication of "pokeys on the edges").

Hey Iann,
I am just curious, what are the identifiers for the subspecies aurantiaca?
