The Difference between Cactus and Succulents

All Cactus are Succulents, however all succulents are not cactus. And although it would be easy to say that cactus have spines, and succulents do not, this is not true for all.

Cactus have Areoles, the spots where their spines or thorns grow from, usually sort of white lumps, but sometimes dark. However not all cactus have spines. And flowers, side shoots stems and even roots can also come from the Areoles.

Some succulents also have spines, but no succulents have Areoles.
