A succulent is any plant with thick, fleshy water storage organs which can be leaves, stems or their roots. The word succos is derived from latin which means Juice or Sap. Common examples are Aloe vera, Cacti, Crassula species like jade plant and many others.
Succulent plants are hardy plants and adapted to survive arid and dry climatic conditions throughout the world and botanically such types of plants are called xerophytes.
One Point to Note is Cacti and Succulents are From Different plant families. But In Home gardening these plants are generally termed together as Cacti and Succulents. All Cacti are succulents, BUT not all succulents are cacti. So this is the only catch, otherwise both these groups have similar properties and also similar care tips for both. So, from now on, when I speak about succulents, cacti are also included in the conversation.
