Anacampseros Telephiastrum

15 reviews
  • 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.

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Loved the plants!! They’re doing well, already!

I was surprised they came in bags instead of cups, probably should have read closer.

Stock photo doesn’t do it justice.

This guy was really shook up from the journey and I didn’t even realize at first that the second bit was buried deep in the soil! Luckily I repotted him the next day. But that color. Oh man. Sooooo gorgeous. Packaging was perfect... even though his journey was rough he was perfectly content, a little dry (no chance of receiving a moldy waterlogged succulent from these guys), he perked right up after a nice big drink of water, succulent potting mix, and a clay pot.
