Anacampseros

Anacampseros is a genus consisting of a several species of small perennial succulent plants native to South Africa. The botanical name is an ancient one for herbs supposed to restore lost love. All form basal rosettes of smooth or hairy leaves in dense mats and develop a small caudex with age. White filamentous hairs are present along the stems. The wheel-shaped flowers vary from white to purple. The plants are self-fertile and produce seeds in a cup of upright filaments. They are dormant in winter.

CULTIVATION TIPS
Anacampseros grow well in partial sun with bright light enhancing the leaf colours and keeping them compact. They require a gritty free-draining soil with added organic material and low to moderate watering. The beautiful caudiciform species are prone to rot and should be watered very sparingly.
