Anacampseros telephiastrum 'Variegata'
Anacampseros rufescens Sunrise is a variegated form of the Rufescens plant. The tiny 3 to 4 inches( 7.5cm) star-shaped rosette is nothing lesser than an eye-candy.
The leaves are green from the top. Bright light makes them get different shades of yellow, purple and pink.It has five, broad petals surrounding a cluster of stamens, held singly or in groups on fleshy stems of about 15 cm in length.
As the plant matures and produces more rosettes, it spreads outwards to form a small mat and develops a thick caudex-like base from which smaller roots serve to anchor it into the soil. Flowers are pink & upto 1.4" in diameter & appears in summers
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.
