    OK. 3 and 12 is maybe Euphorbia mauretanica (and that Mauretania was just ‘somewhere in Africa’ for botanical Latin!)

    I can’t identify any of those, I’m sorry to say :). But I must tell you how beautiful these pics are!
    I love growing succulents, only the place where I live requires me to grow them indoors 😉

    Thanks Kyna! I love succulents as well but mine can luckily live outside. What sort of climate does North Carolina have?
