Can you help to identify these plants, and advise on how to care for them?

I have recently purchased some plants for my patio in Cyprus. They were purchased at a market in a cactus section. 

I live in the UK, so it was important that i brought hard wearing, less water requiring plants.

I brought these plants as i thought they looked unusual, but knowimage nothing about them nor how to care for them correctly. 

Ive never seen these plants before, and searching the internet, i have come up with zero information.

Can anyone help identify these beautiful plants, and give aimageimagedvise on best care?image

    you've got a mix mainly of succulents.You treat them just the same as cactus but with just a little twist don't let them dry out.Don't have them soaking just moist. You can buy cacti compost and feed from any big gard

    This is great. Thank you for your help. I have two more questions.

    1) In your opinion, how long can they last without being watered?

    2) The tap water in Cyprus is pretty salty. Is this ok for succulents / cactus, or is bottled (drinking) water better?

    Sorry for th e delay in getting back to you. Check the pads if there firm thats a good sign. If theres the slightest sign of them getting spongy water them with bottled water.
