Pachyphytums or succulents are plants that have in some places, more than usual, thick and fleshy spots. This is usually to keep the plant hydrated in dry climatic or soil conditions. Succulents can store water in their various structures, such as their leaves and shoots. These water-saving plants are often in areas with high temperatures and low rainfall. Succulents have the ability to thrive in limited water sources, such as fog and frost.
