Care and Propagation Information

General Care for Anacampseros telephiastrum variegata ‘Sunrise’

Anacampseros telephiastrum variegata ‘Sunrise’ is great for the home or office. If growing outdoors, be sure to plant in a container or area of your garden that gets plenty of shade. Watch for pink blossoms in the summer.

Watering

‘Sunrise’ has typical watering needs for a succulent, but it is sensitive to over-watering. It’s best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.

Where to Plant

Anacampseros telephiastrum variegata ‘Sunrise’ is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 30° F (-1.1° C), it’s best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in full to partial sun.

Plant in an area of your garden that gets filtered sunlight or plenty of shade. If planting indoors, place in a room that gets a filtered light.

How to Propagate Anacampseros telephiastrum variegata ‘Sunrise’

Anacampseros telephiastrum variegata ‘Sunrise’ is able to be propagated from stem cuttings or seeds. If you are wanting to grow from seed, be aware that this succulent is slow-growing, and it may take some time before it blooms for the first time.

Cuttings

Simply take a cutting from the stem of ‘Sunrise’ using a sharp, sterilized knife or pair of scissors. Allow it to dry out for a day or two, and then place the cutting in well-draining soil. Water when the soil is completely dry.

Seeds

‘Sunrise’ can be grown from seeds harvested from the flower pod or purchased online. It can be difficult to grow from seed. Begin to sow your seeds in the summer, in a warm place. Keep soil damp, but not too wet, until seeds germinate.
