This means the type of plants whether they are Euphorbia’s, Succulents/Echeveria’s. These type of plant species specially thrive in extreme arid temperatures with little or no water.
That what makes them water wise because they store their water inside their thick fleshy/fury/thorny leaves to protect them from drying out from sun exposure,wind damage and anything that wants to harm it.They adapt to sandy,hot and loose soils, clearly does not bother them if they have water stored inside them to live!
As you can see I have up-cycled a few tins to plant Echeveria’s inside with drainage holes at the bottom to prevent water logging. They have perked up in a few weeks since they were planted and whaala! A mini xerophytic garden to put on the table, patios, the perfect gift for loved ones and friends and many more! They even flower with beautiful decorative flowers, perhaps no scent at all but the appearance is striking!
This type of species, mainly the succulents/ echeveria’s are easily propagated just by a single leaf if you want more of it!
