Commonly Known as: Sand Rose

Care Information: Anacampseros grow well in partial sun with bright light enhancing the leaf colors and keeping them compact. They require gritty, free-draining with added organic material and low to moderate watering. The beautiful caudiciform species are prone to rot and should be sparingly watered. Feed with a high potassium fertilizer during the growing season diluted to 1/4 potency and mixed into the watering can for application. Anacampseros is an excellent plant for container growing. It always looks good and stays small. It looks fine in a cold greenhouse and frame. It does well outdoors in raised beds and terraces as well.

These succulents may be attractive to various insects. Still, plants in good condition should be nearly pest-free, particularly if grown in a mineral potting mix with good exposure and ventilation. Nonetheless, watch carefully for any significant decline in health. This may signal a pest problem that should be dealt with quickly to prevent scarring, stunting, and even death.

Plant Appearance & Sizing

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next and display color, shape, and growth variation based on the current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
