Creating a green fresh ecosystem in your own home is a very difficult complex task not many can accomplish with success. Taking into consideration all the individual demands of each plant and the exact way they can coexist will require devotion and patience form your part. But for the passionate beginner, there is an easier, equally rewardful option that will allow you to create your little corner of heaven. And the answer and solution to this topic is the resilient succulent plant.
“In botany, succulent plants, also known as succulents or sometimes fat plants, are plants having 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, or sap. Succulent plants may store water in various structures, such as leaves and stems. Some definitions also include roots, so that geophytes that survive unfavorable periods by dying back to underground storage organs may be regarded as succulents. In horticultural use, the term “succulent” is often used in a way which excludes plants that botanists would regard as succulents, such as cacti. Succulents are often grown as ornamental plants because of their striking and unusual appearance.”
Maintaining such plants is quite an easy assignment once you get the hang of it, watering being a non issue. Propagating the succulents is simple as well, in the end being a game of waiting and having patience as new plants can emerge from fallen leaves.We have chosen this topic due to the immense beauty these tiny colorful plants add to any interior decor.
