Fat Plants San Diego started as a fun hobby for two ladies in 2009. Both women had been lifetime gardeners, so the friendship began as more of a “plant competition” between the two. They joined plant clubs and drove miles upon miles to find new nurseries together. They built small greenhouses in competition to see who could grow the most exotic species.

It can be quite a challenge to identify succulents correctly. There are thousands of hybrid species that have been scientifically named and probably tens of thousands of them that have yet to be named. Different conditions, such as sunlight, water, food and location also play a role in making succulent identification difficult. Some cultivars cross easily with others so when you have a nursery or garden that contains hundreds of species, overtime you will see mutations emerging.
At the bottom of this page you will find a list of the more popular succulent families/genus with links to additional information about each plant. This section covers the basic succulents that we offer either as fully rooted plants or in our cutting packages.
Here is a list of popular succulent families/genus to get your search started. This page is a work in progress as we grow our company and learn about all of the cactus and succulents we have growing in our gardens. Everyday we are adding more posts on more plants. We hope to have a fully functional succulent identification website by 2016! At the bottom of the page you will find some of the online sources that we use to identify our plants. We appreciate your input!
