    Hi all!!! I have just registered here at this site. I also fairly new to the plant world. I have always loved plants, however, I just now have a house where I am able to venture away from silk flowers. I have several plants already, but I also have a few plants that I do not know what they are. After many unsuccessful hours of searching on the internet, I still have no clue.

    I am posting pictures. Please can anyone help?

    One of the plants I thought might have been a rubber plant, not sure though.
    One of them is a succulent plant, but I am unsure as to its name.

    The first is indeed desert rose, thank you again
    the second is a type of ice plant which will be a ground cover


    the third plant is still a mystery!!!

    The search is still on.

    Thanks again

    3 might be Kalanchoe of some sort. Maybe K. pinnatum?

    Thanks for trying. Neither one after a google search return pictures that look like my plant.

    This picture isnt the best, so I will try to describe it the best I can.

    The leaves are that of a succulent plant, around the edges when the leaves are mature grow little bitty tiny succulents, to me they look like little succulent roses all around the edges.

    This plant also produces a high stalk covered in these leaves, and one the stalk is mature the top produces a flower. The stalk is moderatley thin.

    More about the little "roses" When these fall off the leaves they grow like crazy. These little "roses" will even grow when dropped on concrete. If not careful this plant will grow everywhere these little "roses" fall.

    Reminder....the little "roses" are not in fact roses. I call them roses because they resemble roses, but are the same succulent material as the mother leaf.

    I think lorax is right or very close on the last one. Kalanchoe pinnata does reproduce little baby plants at the leaf margins--complete with roots ready to grow. K. daigremontiana also does this and other species of Kalanchoe in section Bryophyllum do this as well.

    No. 2 looks like SEEDUM, morganianum aka Donkey or Burro tail. On an old thread, months ago on this forum I learned there is another plant that looks very similar, but I can't remember it's name! Barb

    Thank you so much again.

    This plant is not Kalanchoe Pinnata, however you were really close. This plant is Kalanchoe crenato daigremontiana or mother of thousands

    This is also called the Mexican hat plant and some call it mother of millions

    I am just happy to be able to call it something finally.
