    house plant id?

    I can't figure these two plants out? I think they are of the Jade family but have had no luck in identifying them!
    The first is very similar to jade but has upward growing trumpet shaped leaves.

    This second was given to me this spring as a cutting and is supposed to flower, but I have not seen it do this! When it was given to me it had just flower and does so on a long stem that then produces tiny new plants that fall off and easily take root. In the past six months that I have had this plant it has grow rapidly. The person that gave me the cutting recieved cuttings from brother in Denmark and this person recieved cuttings from France.

    I greatly appreciate any help getting an id on these!

    Sure enough I found the first plant only hours after I posted it:
    Family: Crassulaceae
    Genus: Crassula (KRAS-yoo-lah)
    Species: portulacea (por-tew-LAY-see-uh)
    The common name "Trumpet Jade", how's that for logic?

    Still stuck on the second one though!
    Thank you!

    I think you have them - indoor plants are not my strong suit, and I'm glad you were able to puzzle them out.
