Thanks for clearing that up, y'all.
Here is a Kalanchoe with similar flowers, so it's got to be a Kalanchoe too.

Found another one today. Same flowers, different leaves!

It looks to me like the Cotyledon I have in the front yard, and yes there is two forms, maybe more, one does have a deeper red flower, the other is more orange. The leaves get smaller when it is about to flower. Crasulady2

That link shows the weirdest lookin Kalanchoe I've ever seen. Mercy me!

We got to get to the bottom of this. The leaves look like a spoon jade of some kind, the flowers like Kalanchoe...I'm befuddled.

Valley Village, CA

2nd one, a Cotyledon as well, and I want a pinch of that one, I identified it. Lesson: Cotyledon flowers hang down like bells, Adro. up or to the side as well as Tylecoden, both of the last two are similar and have smaller flowers than Cotyledon. (Usually) Tylecoden, flowers, usually flower in summer with no leaves on the plant.

I would be glad to make a trade on the 2nd Cotyledon. Norma

Shoe I was scratching cause I have the Kalanchoe on the link,guess I can give up the library,LOL, nice call Crasulady2!:}

Now I have to look up Cotyledon...I thought it only referred to the first "leaves" of a seed. My mind hurts. ;>)

Hey Guys, have a ball with these:

Norma, I'll just have to go and pinch a pinch for you.
Notice the leaves on the second one grow opposite on stalks, The first one grows more like Jade Plant Crassula.

Oh mercy!...Another whole new wonderful hobby for me to get into! (Have been wanting some different kinds of "jades". Now look what I get to delve into!)

Thanks Ulrich and Crasulady!

Sodwana Bay KZN, South Africa

Count the petals, Max!
The first one has 5, right? It is a Cotyledon. Don't know which species, it could be a hybrid.

The second one has 4. It is a Bryophyllum marnierianum (syn. Kalanchoe marnieriana).

I am not sure what you mean about the leaves on the second one growing opposite? So do the leaves on the first one, and also Crassula ovata has opposite leaves.
All three genera are in the family: Crassulaceae.

No need to send a cutting, but thank you for the offer! :-)

Thanks, maddy, the first one is C. orbiculata, syn. macrantha. Crasulady2 steered me there. I see you are right on with the second one, http://www.aiaps.org/webcam/webcam1.html and I will enter it as such in the database. You might add to the options there.
You will be a great boon to the new Succulents DB.
P.S. By opposite I meant opposite and in one plane only. The other ones are opposite in two planes at right angles to each other.
