The plant on the left is a Christmas cactus, and the one on the right looks like a Fairy Castle cactus. I have 3 Christmas cacti. One blooms red, one fuschia, and one pink. You may see flowers om the ends of the branches anytime in November, December, January. At least that is when mine bloom. Let the plant dry out completely before watering again. Enjoy your new plants.

The one on the left (with the flat leaves) looks like a Christmas cactus. Not sure about the other one.

Hello,

I think it could be a stapeliad from the asclepiad family and the species could be Huernia macrocarpa, also known as the dragon flower. If it was a cactus it would be erected or else it would be a type of rat tail cactus and it would have more sides.

The plant on the right is a stapelia giganta or stapelia aserias. The other plant looks like a Christmas catus.
