The Strange Alien World of Succulents in 21 Photos

 Accustomed to survive in extreme, unusually dry climates, succulents have developed unique adaptations that set them apart from all other plants. There is a huge variety of these plants, with most cacti being succulents, but not all succulents are cacti. They come in a variety of colors and unique shapes, but the typical feature of these plants is the thickened, fleshy, and plump leaves that enable them to retain water in dry climates. These and other unique features make succulents look extremely unusual and sometimes even bizarre, but we must say that these alien-looking plants have a special charm to them. For your viewing pleasure, we have collected 21 of the most beautiful and extraordinary succulents in the world.
