    This is great, and a good tool when thinking about your home succulent plants, plus other exotic / tropical plants… this enables one to determine if a plant is TRULY a ‘xeric’ specimen, as many others may claim. As long as you are able to find a plant’s native range (Google or Wiki), you can try to mimic those conditions based on this map. thanks so much!!


    I also clicked on South America and got this page. Bad link was here:
