In botany, succulent plants, also known as succulents or sometimes fat plants, are plants having some parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. The word "succulent" comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning juice, or sap.[1] Succulent plants may store water in various structures, such as leaves and stems.

Meanwhile, vines are plants that has very long stems and that grows along the ground or up and around something (such as a wall or tree) ; a plant whose stem requires support and which climbs by tendrils or twining or creeps along the ground.
