Hi everyone.

A while ago I was perusing my schools greenhouse and came upon a number of plants (almost all of which were unlabeled) that I was interested in cultivating. Two of them are pictured here. I assume they fall under the succulent category just from their general appearance and the fact they grew easily from cuttings. The light green plant has very waxy leaves and a stem that resembles a cucumber. The other has tiny yellow flowers and very tiny leaves that resemble three leaf clovers (can be seen in the photo).

Any help identifying these two would be greatly appreciated.

The first picture is of Senecio Articulatus, known as a "candle plant." Around my house, we call this guy "space cucumber." Very cool plant.
