...or at least the part that pertains to this part of the forum.
1. Either a San Pedro or a Peruvian Torch, not too sure which. Given to me at a yard sale as an 8" cutting a year ago and now it's 2 foot tall...and growing.
2. From left to right: rickrack cactus and Dragonfruit, both orchid cactus relatives that I got in swaps on the gardenweb forums.
3. Assorted orchid cactus cuttings from swaps here and there; should eventually have pink, white, and red blooms from the different types.
4. 3 Pencil cactus, variety 'Firesticks'; gets red tips in bright light.
5. Devil's backbone, a relative of pencil cactus, crown of thorns, and pointsettia.

6. Christmas cactus and some rhipsalis cuttings.
7. 2 standard jades, a variegated, a crassula minima, an echevaria in bloom in back, and at the base of the variegated jade, a tiny sprouting succulent leaf of some kind (which is the reason I picked that particular var. jade to bring home!).
8. Ghost plant, AKA Mother of Pearl, which I just had to plant in a shellshaped planter. Plus a couple of unlabeled trailing succulents that were on sale.
9. How'd he get in here?! (Sigh) that one's a weed frequently found amid the other plants.
10. Oh, Good Grief, HE got in too! THIS one is noted for knocking things over with the end that isn't visible in the picture (which also can clear a coffe table of papers, cups, and remotes with a single wag).

Number 9 is a succulent, but I'm not so sure about #10.
Love your pics and the interesting containers.

LOL, the local vermin (both rodent and human) would direct your attention to the assorted claws and fangs and say CACTUS!

Very nice! You hit me in a weak spot with the echeveria
