Cactus plants and succulents are a great choice for people who don’t want to spend a lot of time in their garden or caring for their indoor plants. Succulents store water in their leaves. Because of this, succulents thrive in dry conditions and are able to live where rainfall is scarce. Grown all over the world, succulents are easy to grow and can survive dry tropical or semi-tropical climates, like deserts and steppes. They can also be grown in containers.
Cactus Plants vs. Succulents
Cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti. We have colorful succulents and flowering cactus plants if you want to add some splash to your cacti. If you’re planning an indoor garden, check out our selection of potted succulents. If space is an issue, our mini succulents and small succulents will add character and color to any room.
Aloe Vera Plants
Aloe vera plants are known for their healing properties. An aloe vera plant can also make for a great conservation piece when you have guests over. Aloe plants like light, but not direct light. A north or south-facing kitchen window is a convenient home for your aloe plant. Water them only when the soil dries out.
