Since I can't garden outside yet, I ordered some succulents to pot indoors from an Etsy seller.

From whom I will never buy another thing. But that's another story...

Part of the deal was - buy 10 potted succulents, her choice of a mix of 6. So that means you get some that are the same.

So I spent some time IDing the ones in her photo on her ad.

And wasted that time.

Because only 3 were any of the ones in her photo.
So now, I have spent some more time IDing what I actually got.

And this is where you come in...

First, let's start with the aloe I got from Lowes before I got the box of incredibly poorly packed succulents from the Etsy seller.

Now, the rest are from the Etsy seller.

I think this is some sort of agave.

And I think this is a sempervivum.

And I have no idea on any of the 3 of these, which I put in one pot (and may not oughta be in one pot). The largest one has a visible stem that I planted above the soil line.

If you have suggestions, please comment.
The journey is good.

And it's even better when you can review an online sale...

Oh jeez. Two of the three unknown ones used to grow in my grandparents' yard (in Seattle, where hardy succulents can winter over safely outdoors) when I was a kid. I don't know their names, though. I'll see if my dad remembers.

Also, I think you're right about the sempervivum.

Good luck in identifying them!
