I'm not very good at this, I just started getting into succulents recently, but here it goes. The smallest plant in Picture 5 and pic 3 in the blue put are both Jade plants, Pic 4 the plant all the way on the right and pic 6 in the blue pot appears to be Christmas Cacti that arnt blooming like they should be this time of year.

Thats all I can even guess at.

pic #1 in the gray colored pot looks like it might be a Rhipsalis cereuscula aka rice plant but I could be wrong on that, pic #4 in the brown pot and pic#6 in the blue are holiday cactus that need TLC. the rest I'm just not sure of.

I've got a few.

Picture 3:

9:00 position I know as 'Spider Plant'
6:00 position is Scilla violacea One of the few bulbs that does not go dormant.

Picture 4:

12:00 position is Portulacaria afra commonly called 'Baby Jade' or 'Elephant Bush'

Re: Plant identification?

7: looks like Crassula tetragona (mini pine tree)
8: compare to Graptoveria 'Opalina'
9: Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi (lavender scallops)
10: Senecio, IDK which species. One of those called blue chalk sticks maybe.
