    Succulent plants come in all colors and sizes. We love having Aloe Vera plants and chicks and hens. Neither of these require water more than once a month. There are many many kinds from which to choose though. Your local nurseries will probably have many sorts on hand if water is at a premium for your area. These amazing plants store water for use later, like cactus. By the way, cactus produce some of the most beautiful desert flowers. If you do not have small children who might fall into them, they are gorgeous plants.
  • What zone are you in?

    Then Google for drought resistant plants for your Zone. Plants in containers will take more water than in ground plants as they dry out much quicker, but still easily doable. How are the water meter (s) set up?

    Succelents of course. Here in droughty California I save my "warm up" shower water in a bucket for watering the yard. I also save water in another bucket while I am taking a shower. My plants are thriving . To save on your water bill save any water you can for your yard whether it is washing vegetables for dinner or taking a bath.

    Mother in law’s tongue, succulents, and check your local greenhouse for varieties of cacti
