Collection: Cactus, Succulents, other Desert Plants

Cacti and succulents are two types of plants that are often confused with each other. While all cacti are considered to be succulents, not all succulents are cacti.

Succulents are a broader group of plants that store water in their leaves, stems, or roots, allowing them to survive in arid environments. They come in many different shapes and sizes and are found all over the world.  Some popular examples of succulents include aloe vera, agave, jade plant, and snake plant. 

Cacti are known for their distinctive appearance, which includes spines, areoles, and a lack of leaves. They are native to the Americas and are found in a variety of habitats, from deserts to rainforests. Some popular examples of cacti include the saguaro, prickly pear, and barrel cactus.

While both cacti and succulents are relatively easy to care for, they have different requirements when it comes to watering, light, and soil.
