Cheap Succulents–What exactly are they?
Succulents, known also as fat plants are plants that developed the ability to retain water in their leaves in order to survive in more harsh climates. As a result, their leaves become fleshy and thickened, which gives them their much admired appearance. However, they are able to withstand very harsh and dry climates and don’t tend to do well in humid climates. Think of them like “Camels”–they do need water to survive, yet they can endure very long periouds with the little water they have stored.
