I used to play scrabble when I was in college and one word that I can still remember is "xerophile". One of the priest that I played scrabble with used this word. According to the online dictionary, xerophile is plant adapted for life with a limited supply of water, you may compare compare hydrophyte and mesophyte. Now, I searched for any kind of plant that belongs to xerophile but I found a different thing. Cactus and bromeliad belongs to xerophytes family.
