What are succulent plants?
Succulent or succulent plants are those in which the root, stem or leaves have been thickened to allow the storage of water in much greater quantities than in the rest of the plants.
This adaptation allows them to maintain water reserves for long periods and survive in arid and dry environments that other plants find uninhabitable. The most typical example of succulence is that of cacti, in which the stem contains a thick layer of parenchymal tissue, but there are other plant families that present the same phenomenon.
