Cactus and succulents belong to a very versatile, large
group of plants that mostly come from desert wastelands. They are
very carefree, rugged, and drought resistant, and yet claims so many
interesting shapes and spectacular flowers.
Succulent plants store water and other nourishing
elements in their swollen "fat" body including stems, leaves,
roots. This unique ability help them to survive long periods of drought
or many hostile environments.
