Succulents are plants that store water in their fleshy, thickened leaves and/or stems. The name succulent comes from the Latin ‘sucus’ which means juice or sap. These plants are adapted to survive on limited water resources such as dew or mist making them tolerant to drought. There are numerous different cultivars of succulents and they are great for new plant parents.
