    Well,

    That's quite a good starter collection. I think you might benefit from a good general book on growing succulents. I'm sure a local library would have one. From my rusty memory of these plants, I would say:

    top row: 1,2. Orbea species (a stapeliad); 3,4 : Huernia pillansii (monstrose form) (another stapeliad)

    2nd row: Kalanchoe species (jade plant relative)

    3rd row: 1: same as above; 2, 3: Haworthia fasciata

    4th row: 1,2: Pleiospilus bolusii (an ice plant)

    5th row: 1,2: same as above; 3,4: Pachyphtytum species (or possibly xPachyveria) (jade plant relative)

    6th row: 1: same as above; 2: Sedum species (jade plant relative)

    Beware your screen resolution with this one. I viewed this page in 1280x1024, which diplays 2 rows of 5 pictures, 1 row of four and the last or fourth row has one. Douglas obviously uses a different resolution, I suspect 1024x768. So if you are having difficulty understanding which picture Douglas is referring to, try changing your screen resolution.

    PS. correct spelling: Pleiospilos bolusii

    You have some haworthia fasciata the ones beside the flowering plant in the 3rd row. The flowering plant is Kalanchoe blodseffiana I guess? The small bluish plant with a yellow flower is probably a Lithops species.
