  • The creation of the succulent. There is no questioning the succulent, their characteristics are so unique that when you see one you know just what it is. Seeing as they store water within their leaves, they portray a very meaty quality with their thick flesh, similar to the well-known cactus.
    • Surviving for a long time after being cut, succulents will stay fresh and withhold their appearance, so you won’t have to worry about your arrangements wilting away anytime soon.
    • Easy to tend to, succulents thrive in dry climates and need little water, so who wouldn’t love to take care of such a simple flower?!
