3D pen art: 3 types of succulents in pots

Succulents store water in their leaves, this gives their leaves a unique shape and feeling. Their leaves tend to be thick and fleshy. Succulents are not cacti but cacti are a type of succulent. Different succulents and cacti genus provide a variety of different colors and textures for a drought-resistant landscape. They thrive in dry, arid climates where most other plants would not survive.

Succulents are a great starter plant as they don’t require that much maintenance and come in many crazy colors and textures. Another amazing quality of succulents is their ability to propagate easily.

Many of these plants can grow new plants using simply a leaf cutting from the mother plant. This is yet another reason succulents are cool, once you buy one you can grow as many as you want.
