The drought and water conservation arenít just a concern for outdoor gardeners. If you want to do your part in conserving water, but donít have a garden, you can elect to grow houseplants that donít need as frequent watering. Plantscaping your home, office, dorm, or apartment with succulent plants will not only brighten up your living quarters, but youíll grow plants that donít mind being grown a little on the dry side.
1. Desert Rose
Adenium obesum is one of my all-time favorite succulent houseplants. When grown to highlight the fat bottom, the stems emerging from the caudex give this plant the appearance of a miniature tree. The many hybrid and grafted forms of this plant produce trumpet-shaped blooms in red, pink, white. You can also find some where all three colors are grafted onto one plant.
