It's often difficult to identify small succulents. So many look alike ... but I'll try :o)

Going around clockwise ...

At 1 o'clock - Echeveria zahanii
.. 3 o'clock - Crassula perforata (Variegated form)
.. 6 o'clock - Sempervivum
..10 o'clock - Pachyphytum oviferum
In the centre - difficult to tell - it could be a Pachyphytum or a Kalanchoe.
(if it flowers, it will be easier)

Well I hope I've helped a bit. Maybe someone else will know the ones I don't.

On second thoughts, the 6 o'clock one might be a very small Graptopetalum ...

Thanks Hywel, I'll google them all:-)))

Now I think I can definitely tick off pachyphytum lol it looks the same as mine. I looked as echeverias and though Black Prince might be mine and the graptopetallum looks right too. When they flower (if) I'll put their pics on for further i.d. to make sure. Thanks again Hywel:-))

Ba, am I being rude if I say the light green one looks like a crumpled lettuce leaf.

Yes very rude Phyl lol. It doesn't really, it's a sort of tover of thick, variegated leaves. Either bad photo or ya shoulda gone to Specsavers. I always think some of the yellow/green hostas look like lettuce. I bought two over a year ago and still haven't planted them. Can't think what the heck to do with them:-))
