First time buying cactus and succulents can some tell me what I have there are no labels on them , and also one of the succulents has a long root coming out of the bottom of the container as u can see in the pic and it seems to be damaged should I cut it before reporting it.

Hi Joe,
Well, there are thousands of succulents but I'll give it try on a couple of them. The one with the teeth looks like the hybrid aloe "minnie belle". The cactus with the flattened pads is an opuntia, hard to tell which one until it blooms. The other cactus, an echinocereus, also hard to tell until it blooms. The other I'll think about, I have owned them and should be able to pull the information from the recesses of my old brain.

The others look like they may be Haworthias. Click on a thumbnail to see the plant.

I'm so glad you came up with that, I was about to get out the succulent books to refresh my memory.
I've never had much luck with haworthias, maybe it's just too dry here in California for them.
As far as the root goes, I'd leave it unless you can't get the plant out. It isn't going to make any difference, succulents need very little root to survive so losing it won't matter.

Thank you for all your help I will leave the root as it is .
