Succulent plants, also known as succulents, are plants with parts that are thickened, fleshy, and engorged, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. The word succulent comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning 'juice', or 'sap'. A general definition of succulents is that they are drought resistant plants in which the leaves, stem, or roots have become more than usually fleshy by the development of water-storing tissue. All cactus are succulents, but not all succulents are cactus.
