Tips and Facts
- There are over 2,000 species of cacti, with various shapes and forms.
- Cacti are real water reservoirs; their inner liquid is not pure, clear water but a thick viscous stuff, but perfectly drinkable.
- The storage of water often gives succulent plants a more swollen or fleshy appearance than other plants.
- High temperatures and low precipitation force plants to collect and store water to survive long dry periods.
