There are over 60 different families of succulents, and they aren't all native to the desert. Some succulents don't even need soil! 

Succulents are a group of plants that have some parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. While they do not need water to survive, they can endure extended periods of drought. Nearly all cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti. 

They love bright filtered sunlight. Best foliage colors are achieved when exposed to a lot of light. 

Overwatering is one of the most common ways to kill succulents, but they still need enough water to withstand periods of draught.
