The genus Anacampseros used to have a larger number of species. It has now been split in 3 genus: Anacampseros and Avonia from South Africa, and Grahamia with species in the Americas and Australia. These are great plants for dish gardens or used as a ground cover. Anacampseros is the ancient name for an herb that was supposed to restore lost love. Anacampseros form clumping rosettes of succulent leaves. They develop a small caudex as they age. The flowers come from time to time in late spring or summer, and they open on sunny days only. They are self-fertile and produce seeds in a cup or upright filaments. They are mildly fragrant and quite showy. Hardiness zones 9-11, (-5°C/25°F, 4°C/40°F). They won't take any frost. During the winter months, nighttime temperature is allowed to drop to 48°F (9°C), with daytime temperatures typically in the mid 50’s (12°C). During this period water is restricted to only enough to keep the leaves from shriveling. In early spring, watering is resumed. Anacampseros need full sun to partial shade, with a well-drained soil mix. Use a soil mix consisting of equal parts of loam and sand with small gravel added to insure good drainage. Water well the plant and then allow to dry thoroughly before watering again. Fertilize them twice during the growing season (in early spring and in late summer) with a balanced fertilizer diluted to ½ the strength recommended on the label.

Germination Sow seed in pots or trays of moist peat/sand mix compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 20-25ºC (68-77ºF). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 30-180 days, it can take longer, don't give up.
