 The lovely Echeveria Blue Fairy is one of best selling succulents, and with good reason. This rosette has blue green foliage, and sometimes the pointed tips have a reddish color.

 Make sure the soil is moist at all times during the spring and summer months.

 Water when soil is dry to the touch, which is approximately every 7 - 10 days. Avoid water it daily. Water them more in spring and summer and less in winter, and it’s better to underwater them than overwater them.

Anacampseros Telephiastrum

  Anacampseros Telephiastrum is a dense mat and caudex forming succulent up to inches (15 cm) tall, with lanceolate shaped green, bright pink and yellow or cream colored leaves.

 They can be grown compact as rosettes, but with time they start go grow longer and longer and offsetting to create a dense mat or trail over the edge of pots. With age they also can form a small caudex as the base of the plant, but because of how very slow growing they are this takes a very long amount of time.

 Flowers are pink and up to 1.4 inches (3.5 cm) in diameter and appear in afternoon in summer.

 All of the plants will be shipped bare root

  Anacampseros grow well in partial sun with bright light enhancing the leaf colors 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.

  Feed with a high potassium fertilizer in summer during the growing season diluted to one-fourth potency and mix into the watering can for application. Anacampseros is an excellent plant for container growing. It always looks good and stays small. It look fine in a cold greenhouse and frame. It do well outdoors in raised beds and terraces as well.
