1. Transparent Succulent Plant
The Haworthia cooperi is a small rare succulent plant with fleshy translucent leaves. The “see-through” Haworthia cooperi succulent has shiny transparent leaves that grow in a rosette pattern in sandy soil. Depending on the Haworthia cooperi cultivar, the plump leaves can be triangular-shaped or globular.
Called Greenovia Dodrentalis, these succulents have curved layered petals that make the plants look just like roses. Mostly they’re found in the Canary Islands. But we would say they belong somewhere in a fairy tale because of how unique and magical they look!
A species of succulent called Monilaria obconica has a rather unique feature. Namely the fact that it looks like it has little bunny rabbit ears! The Bunny Succulent is a unique plant because it is a heterophyllous plant. That meaning it can grow more than one type of leaf on the same plant. It has a caudex form, bearing a swollen, above-ground trunk.
4. Euphorbia Succulents
5. Trachyandra Succulents
While all succulents are adapted to conserve water, none do it so well as the Lithops. They rarely drink at all, and when they do, it isn’t very much. In fact, some wild Lithops never see rain. They survive by drawing moisture from mist or fog a few times a year.
