Camels of the Plant Kingdom

Just like camels can go days without a drop of water, some plants have undergone a series of physiological adaptations that allows them to store water and reduce water loss.  Cacti are only one of the various families of plants that are drought resistant. They are the perfect plant for the voyager or for those of us who forget, sometimes, to water our babies.
