Location : Miri Town, Sarawak, Malaysia.
In botany, succulent plants, also known as succulents, are plants with parts that are thickened, fleshy, and engorged, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. The word succulent comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning ‘juice’, or ‘sap’. Succulent plants may store water in various structures, such as leaves and stems. (Wiki)
The last thing I had expected Miri to surprise us would be wild plants from the desert. Indeed surprised I was by the sheer varieties and beauty that these desert plants possessed had me blown away. Thanks to our local friend Ms Elaine Chong who brought us to two houses here in Miri had us quickly transformed into suckers for succulents.
I supposed these plants will survive or have been surviving very well in the tropics here with minimum maintenance. The size of the retail outlet could easily indicate the popularity of the hobby of succulent planting in Miri. No cheap hobby. Some small pots were selling a couple of hundred ringgit each. Next…..In and around Miri city.
