Decor inspiration – succulents & cacti

We can’t get enough of these magnificent plants – We’re total succulent nerds.

Succulent vs. Cactus – do you know the difference?

“In botany, succulent plants, also known as succulents or sometimes fat plants, are plants having some parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. The word “succulent” comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning juice, or sap.[1] Succulent plants may store water in various structures, such as leaves and stems.” (wikipedia)

So, that is basically the reason I have yet to kill my succulents – they are thriving in their arid living room conditions 😉
