Despite all being the same variety of plant, succulents vary greatly from species to species. One succulent, known as the Blue Chalk Fingers, grows straight up with finger-like branches coming off the stalk. If you were to touch these branches a white chalk-like substance will come off on your fingers. Another succulent, known as the Key Lime Pie, has chubby leaves and edges that remind one of pie crust. When the time comes they will grow long stems on which there will be white flowers. Lastly, another type of succluent is known as the Desert Rose. These have bulby brown stems and waxy green leaves. Eventually, these will get large pink flowers. So, as you can tell, despite being all classified as succulents these plants vary greatly.
