Succulent are plants with leaves that are thickened, fleshy, or engorged, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. They are drought resistant due to this water retention in their leaves, stems, or roots, so often do not need a lot of water. The word succulent comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning 'juice', or 'sap'. The most popular succulent is the cactus! All cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
