In succulents, their fleshy leaves contain their "water reservoir", and they adopt different tricks to avoid transpiration: in fact, they are covered with either hairs, or waxy/powdery substances.
The beauty of succulents is all their different shapes, sizes and, above all, colours that we only find in nature. These range from white to dark purple, passing through all shades of pink, yellow, orange, red, green, grey and blue. Plants in the cactus-family are recognisable by their characteristic round or cylindrical shape covered with thorns: these are actually their leaves that, for environmental reasons, have transformed themselves as a way of protecting the plant from drought.

These plants, living water reservoirs, also have another incredible feature: their concertina structure. This allows them to fill up with water to become rounder and then in periods of drought gradually return to their original shape.
