Succulent plant
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Not to be confused with cactus; cacti are succulents but not all succulents are cacti.

Succulent plants, also known as succulents or fat plants, are water-retaining plants adapted to arid climates or soil conditions. Succulent plants store water in their leaves, stems, and also in roots. Geophytes that survive unfavourable periods by dying back to underground storage organs such as tuberous roots, corms, bulbs, and rhizomes, may be regarded as succulents.

Διαπιστώνω ότι η επιστήμη έχει καταλήξει στον όρο παχύφυτα (έτσι στον Πάπυρο και στο διαδίκτυο). Άκυρα τα παλιά που έχουν τα λεξικά (σαρκώδη φυτά, οπώδη φυτά). Έχουμε και νεολογισμό, γιατί τον όρο τον έχει ο Πάπυρος και το λεξικό του, αλλά δεν βλέπω να έχει περάσει στα άλλα λεξικά.
