Succulent plants

The succulents are plants that have some parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. The word "succulent" comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning juice. Succulent plants may store water in various structures, such as leaves and stems. The storage of water often gives succulent plants a more swollen or fleshy appearance than other plants, a characteristic known as succulence.
