November 15th meeting
Natural History and Cultivation of Succulent Plants
Michael and Rosario Douglas
Succulent plants or “succulents” are plants that are adapted to survive in environments with long dry periods. Succulents have the ability to store extra water in either their leaves, stems or below ground. Although most succulents live in areas of low rainfall and high temperatures, some are found in tropical rain forests or in areas that freeze every winter. There are about 10,000 species of succulent plants belonging to many plant families. The Cactaceae is one of those families and unique to this group is that all plants in this family are succulents.
Join us to learn more about this fascinating group of plants we call “succulents“
