    I am addicted, I admit it. I can't get enough succulents. WalMart just cleared out their cactus and succulents for 1/2 price and I could resist. The only problem is that they never have name tags on them. (If I had know about the clearance going on at Target, 70% off, I would have had even more. Good thing I didn't know about that sale, huh!)
    Anyway, I am having a problem ID'ing my new plants. Anybody have a clue as to what they are? I think the first 5 plants are Aeonium or Echeveria of some kind. The last two I think are some kind of Pachyveria. Am I even close. If anyone knows the specific names for each and any care tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Would you prefer this thread be kept or the two threads in the Cacti and Succulents forum? Multiple threads on the exact same topic are removed on these forums - they split the discussion and can cause different people to do the same work.

    I thought I would get an assortment of people answering my question if I posted it on two different forums. Someone that doesn't frequent one forum may go to another forum and know what my plants are. Is this the wrong way to go about finding the information I seek?

    Yes, at least for these forums.

    What you can do, if you want, is to put your main post in one forum, then post an information note in other forums (Hi, I'm looking for some ID help - please see this thread here) asking people to check out the main post (and linking to it). If you need help with making links, I can address that.

    That sounds like a plan. I'm not sure how to link the post to a different forum post though. I need some guidance on that fancy manuever.

    I'm trying to figure out a way to explain it or demonstrate it. I can think of about 5 different ways to do it. I suppose the easiest way is to find the thread you want to link to, copy the URL (the part at the top of the browser that begins with http:// in the white bar) using CTRL-A to select all of the URL - you need to have the cursor in that white bar for this work. Then, press CTRL-C (copy) to copy the URL to the hidden clipboard. Start a new thread elsewhere that will contain the link. When you want to insert the link, you use CTRL-V (paste) to paste it in - as long as "Automatically parse links in text" is selected in the Additional Options below (and it is by default), the link will automatically be created. Give that a try in The Test Bed.

    That sound pretty straightforward. I will try it out. And to answer your original question, I guess the Cactus and Succulent Forum would make the most sense for my post to be in

    I went to the Test Bed section and was able to link one thread to another. You give great directions! Thankyou. Now I know the correct way to put the same information on different forums.
