    Hello. These plants came from Walmart and Lowes. Most of them were not labeled, or were labeled with a broad, common name. I'm hoping you guys can help me put a name to some, if not all my plants. Here are a few pictures.

    1) This one I received as a "Tiger Jaws"


    2) This one is a "Mosaic Aloe"


    3)


    4)


    5)


    6)


    7) This one isn't a cactus nor a succulent, hopefully you guys don't mind. This one grows outside and comes back year after year even after the abuse of being run over with the lawn mower several times. I only know it as a "Flaming Star".




    Thanks,
    Crystal

    Number 6 looks like a Haworthia, and 7 is a Hibiscus.

    #1 = Faucaria tigrina. (Probably). This is a Mesemb, and has special watering requirements.

    #4 = Adromischus cristatus

    #2 even says the scientific name on its tag, which is Aloe harlana.

    Thanks everyone for your replies. I've done some more research and think I have found out what a few of these are based on your guesses.

    I've stopped trusting tags. I've found a few pictures of A. harlana and my plant seems a bit off. It looks more like A. jucunda to me.

    I believe #6 is a Haworthia fasciata,
    #4 an Adromischus cristatus,
    #3 Opuntia microdasys, but could really be anything due to it appearing to be a young plant.

    I still have no idea what #5 and #7 are. I agree that #7 has flowers that appear to be similar to Hibiscus, but I have never seen a Hibiscus with 4-5 points on the leaves. Before the plants started blooming this year, I actually had someone trespass on my property and cut several buds out of one of my plants, mistaking it for Cannabis most likely . The cuts were perfectly slanted and smooth such as that from a knife, and were too tall for any animal around here to reach.

    I was the first one to tell you it was indeed a hibiscus . They must not smoke too much to mistake MJ buds for Hibisus buds Or maybe they were smoking too much Can't tell you exactly what species though.

    Looks like the cops got confused, too.

    thats hillarious that someone took the buds for that. thats one of those hardy hibiscus types. Number 5 almost looks like a san pedro cactus. Probably wrong but its very similar.
