All cactus plants are succulents. But not all succulents are cactus plants. The term 'succulent cactus' is correct if it refers to any and all cactus plants, which are all succulents. It's incorrect if it refers to cactuses that are succulents as opposed to those that aren't. Within the cactus family, some have what may be called succulent seeds, and others not. Specifically, all cactus plants that have edible, flavorful fruits have succulent seeds. For example, the seeds of the mistletoe or wickerwork [Rhipsalis spp] and the prickly pear [Opuntia spp] cactus plants are succulent, from their respectively fleshy berries and fruits. In contrast are the dry seeds of the woolly seedpod of the barrel cactus [Echinocactus spp]. Examples of non cactus succulents abound. A well known non cactus succulent is the Agave, which is native to the Americas and to the West Indies. Another is Aloe vera, whose native range runs from Arabia to South Africa. Still another is Echeveria of Mexico. Yet others include Sansevieria of tropical Africa, and the worldwide distributed Euphorbia, Kalanchoe, and Sedum.
