Not sure of what kind of Graptoveria (I assume) the first one is. When I put it in the sun, it developed bright purple swirls.

The other one has beautiful color too. Almost iridescent.
Any one know what kind the 2nd one is?

First one looks like Graptopetalum pentandrum Superbum, not a Graptoveria.. Second one does look like a hybrid, though I don't recognize it.

I have a succulent that looks similar to your first picture but the leaves are skinnier. I got it at a cactus show but it didn't come with a name tag. I have seen them everywhere, whatever it is, they are very common. (I would post a pic but I am at work right now.) Anyway, I am curious if they put out flowers. Any ideas? Thanks!

If it's Graptopetalum pentandrum or Graptopetalum superbum, then yes; they put out a spray of small, finely detailed flowers that appear as if engraved (epitomizing the Latin name Graptopetalum, which means engraved petals). Mine have flowered a few times, but I think I need to repot; it skipped last season.

Hey there G!! We keep bumping into each other. :)

I remembered that I posted a pic of it when we were showing off our show purchases. Here's a link:

To my very untrained eye, the leaves on mine are narrower (width-wise) than the ones you mentioned. ?? I really have no idea though, lol. I'm just hoping it will flower at some point. Thanks!
