Cacti and Succulents

The literal meaning of succulents is "juicy plants." Many succulents and cacti are inhabitants of arid areas and have evolved the ability to store large amounts of water in their leaves, stems, and roots, hence the name. The interesting and grotesque forms make them quite appealing to the plant collector.
However not only can the plants have fantastic shapes, but the flowers can be quite beautifully distinctive as well.
