Succulent Textures

 Cactus provide amazing texture, especially in real life!  They can be thorny, spiny, pointy, waxy, hairy or rounded and are all succulents - also known as fat plants.
 Succulents are thick and fleshy, created to store water for periods of time when there is a drought.
 Did you know that succulents can retain their water even when the flesh heats up to 126 degrees!  Talk about staying power.
 Succulents can vary in color from blue to green, gray to red.  Some plants flower brilliant blooms, others don't.
