    Hey everyone,

    I've had both of these succulents in my collection (and used them for work) for ages, and I can't find out what they are. I've looked everywhere, tried everything I can think of and a solid identification still eludes me. So if anyone can help, I'd be very grateful!

    The first one (unknown 2) is a low growing plant with (what can only be described as) bobbly tops. It grows like crazy and is so easy to propagate. The second one (unknown 5) has textured leaves, almost like suede. I think it could be a crassula, but I'm not sure.

    Thanks!

    The first one could be a Sedum of some sort - very unique looking, that's for sure, and I'd second your guess of Crassula for the second.

    Sedum would have been my guess to the first as well, but it seems they're both unusual which makes me even more curious to find out what they are for sure!

    Thanks for replying, anyway. :)

    I'm guessing no one knows for sure what these are then. Hmm, a real challenge.

    That is precisely what it is! Just had a look on Google and that's definitely the plant. Many, many thanks, Lila!

    Now, anyone any ideas about the second? :D

    #2 looks like Sedum adolphii to me.

    It's very similar to an adolphii, but it isn't. I've been looking at pictures and it's something like a crassula erosula 'Campfire'.
