What is a succulent?
Succulents are plants that have fleshy sap-filled leaves. Because they are mostly native to arid areas such as deserts, this allows them to survive the driest periods by retaining water.
Although we usually only identify smaller Echeveria-type plants with the word succulents, the family actually covers many types of plants. Cacti, Orchids, Aloe Vera and even houseplants like Hoyas and Emerald Palms are considered succulents as they can retain water.
They are perfect for the less green-fingered as they require little care, and many even thrive on negligence!
