    A is most likely an Echeveria, B maybe an Aeonium which never got enough light, or if more succulent a CrassulaXEcheveria. C may be an Echeveria too, but that did not recieve enough light.

    A looks like a Echeveria. I think B is Echeveria Perle von Numberg, and C looks like Pachyveria Glauca. A looks in good health but both B and C look like they need more light.

    Thanks for the response!

    Unfortunately weather is not that great in the uk at the moment I think they all need a bit of hot sunshine!

    They're located at a south facing window but light is limited at this time of year!

    I think what the problem is a combination of in door tempetures with to low of light. If you could put the plant somewhere that is a round 5.c that should stop the plant from growing. Maybe a porch window or a cold frame. It just has to stay above freezing

    Thanks, Joclyn! :) Not so busy this holiday.

    I agree with Valley Succulents' IDs (with just slight variation on names) & advice.a
    Echeveria (would be interesting to see its blooms, if that happens)
    Echeveria 'Perle von Nurnberg'
    Pachyveria glauca

    /waves to rosemarie ;)

    dowtish, you can always add some artificial lighting to compensate for lack of sunlight. don't need anything special either. just a basic desk lamp that takes a tube and use a 'grow light' type instead of the regular fluorescent type would do the trick.
