I can't help you with the Sempervivum pups you have. Some look similar to ones I have, but I am not an expert and refer to books or online catalogs to check out the pictures and try to match. There are so many cultivars, its hard to be sure.

The fleshy leaves look very familiar, but I can't pin down what it is called. Looks like it is in the Portulaca family.

No worries. A few cool thing happened recently. Im just waiting for the big bang before I report it all here. The pics should be good.

All of the leaves have seedlings growing. They are all stretching for light so I might move one outdoor, in the shade. Im taking a risk with one to see what happens. This summer has been really windy, so I dont really want to move it outside.

My main semp clump I got, some of them are turning brown. What I did is put a wood log in front of them with netting on top. So now rather than direct light they are getting broken up light and much less than before. I guess they were burning out? Only a few of the semps in the pot turned brown, I only water them once a week so its not over watering.

Guess I can share there. Dunno what kind they are, but they've been thriving in shady near-bog conditions in zone 5 for 3-4 years now. Came from a rather invasive clump my mother gave me. The biggest ones are 4-5" across

Very nice Kehy. I prefer if people share their cacti and succulents here. Those look like semp, they love sun, heat and cold. Water might be a problem but they are hardy. Winter + water is a problem but you seem to be growing them well.

Time for an update
-----------------------
Hi guys, Ive had many seedums, tropical plants, bonsai, vegetables and aquatic plants flower, but Ive never had anything that had big flowers....until now!!! Im so happy, Ive been waiting for my echinopsis to flower. Now someone can finally ID it. I just love how big the flowers are. I also love the zebra flower as its the most interesting looking flower yet. The aloe is on its way as well. This aloe lost a few of its bottom leaves during this past winter. They just dried out, I dont know if I didnt water it enough or I shouldve misted it.

Samee, there are so many hybrids of Echinopsis that it is almost impossible to give a correct ID of which one you have. You may have a species, but I can't tell. No information from the person/place you got the plant?

Hey, no the person I bought it from didnt know. He had like 30 pots of the same cactus, some where huge. He was telling me his grew a few inches every year, which is crazy. Im assuming he waters them every other day or something, because thats crazy fast growth. Mine which flowered has not grown much at all, and its in direct sunlight, gets slow release ferts and water once a week. The smaller pup I got from him has not grown much either, but its giving out 3 small pups.
