    I was out and about and found a little stand of plants well the lady had a bunch of cacti as well they were very little but nice so I bought four of them and when I asked for the names of them, the lady had no idea any of the names! I have some pictures of them, but i'm not sure how to get them on the site from my camera? Anyone know how or have and ideas on how I can identify my cacti?

    I figured out how to put my pictures of my cacti on my thread. So here they are, can someone please help me on idenifying my cacti, so I can learn the right way on how to take care of them. Unless anyone else knows how to take care of them for me.
    Thanki You Very much Tilli51079.

    #2 and #4 are both Haworthia species, not sure about #1 and #3, but I like #1

    1 is a variety of sempervivum - hens & chicks...also, it looks to be sending up bloom stalks - once it blooms, it dies. if there are any other 'chicks' there, they will continue to grow. that particular one looks like one i bought which is hardy in my area, zone 6. sorry, don't know the name. there are so, so many varieties, it's hard to identify them.

    3 looks like a variety of kalanchoe. again, tons of varieties...

    Number two is indeed a Haworthia--maybe fasciata or attenuata. Number 4 looks like Aloe haworthoides. At least this gives a couple more names to search! Number 3 might be one of the Kalanchoes.

    #2 looks more like H. fasciata than attenuata to me.

    I'll back up #3 as a Kalanchoe, you can also search Bryophyllum for plants of the same genus.

    #4 really looks like Aloe haworthoides.
