You Say Succulents, We Say Fat Plants
Succulents, sometimes referred to as fat plants, are lush, juicy plants that have the ability to store water internally. This survival technique has allowed them to adapt to arid living conditions. These brilliant plants come in thousands of sizes, shapes and colors and are truly some of nature’s best works of art. Learn more about what a succulent is here.

Succulent gardening is addictive.
We are building this site to share our passion of succulents with you, discuss our gardening mistakes and to show you what has been successful for us. There is a ton of information out there and we would be fools to think that everything we know about fat plants is fact.
What we write on our site will be our opinion and our lessons learned. We will always source our facts and appreciate your comments, feedback and corrections! Welcome to our wonderful world of succulent bliss.
