Succulents are one of the trendiest accent pieces for your home, garden or planter. These ornamental plants have been showcased by interior designers and stylists, in dozens of Home & Garden magazines recently, making them of the hippest plants to own.
Succulents have been around forever; so why are they so popular all of a sudden, and what are they?
Succulent plants are sometimes known as drought resistant plants, perfect for arid climates or soil conditions, since they retain water to survive unfavorable weather periods.
Succulents are plants that store water in their leaves and stems, giving them a strikingly unique appearance, with unusually thickened and fleshy structures.
As an outdoor plant, succulents require hot temperatures and low precipitation. Therefore, the Canadian climate is not ideal. However, they are great as ornamental house plants because they thrive in a range of indoor conditions. Succulents are very adaptable and hard to kill if they are potted properly.
