    What're the succulents in the last photo? They look just like the ones I found growing on granite slabs near a stream an hour or two north from me.

    Very cool photos, especially the ones where you stretch out a bit. Good work.

    The palm looks like a cycad, maybe from the Cycas genus. The commonly grown one is Cycas revoluta, known as the sago palm.

    Those are Sempervivum, or sometimes called "hens and chicks". They could also be Jovibarba, althought it's difficult to tell the difference without flowers (although the second to last pic is definitely a Sempervivum). The last picture appears to be some sort of Echeveria or a relative.

    Nepfreak, I believe that that "leaf surface of something" is an iron cross begonia. The strange flower is some sort of Stapeliad or related plant. Those "peacock feather leaves" are of a species of prayer plant.

    The "bizarre flower" looks like hueria zebrina, although it could also be huernia confusa...or some other huernia/orbea/stapelia. Did it smell like rotting flesh? Apparently some Asclepiadaceaes smell really rank and I would love to figure out what ones are really rank beforehand instead of waiting for the various teeny cuttings I have to eventually flower sometime in my lifetime...
