What are Succulent Plants?
Succulents are plants with parts that are thickened, fleshy and engorged, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. They are those tiny cute, fleshy leaved creatures that remind me of cupcakes. Because they are so symmetrical and attractive, they make you want to play with and pluck their leaves and therein lies their genius, because that is how they multiply and propagate. Though often mistaken, cacti are also succulents. Buy succulents online to get drought-tolerant plants you can forget you have without any fuss.
