Succulents are a group of plants that get their name from the fleshy structures that make up the bulk of the plant. Sometimes these look like thick leaves, other times these are more stem-like structures. Regardless of the external look, the internal structures of succulents are designed to retain water. This gives them the flesh-like appearance from which they take their name. There are many different kinds of succulents and they are found all over the world. They are also popular plants for home gardening. Some of the most common are the cactus, the aloe and the agave.
