I bought a anacampseros rufescens at Lowe's. It looked like an interesting plant and since my other exotic succulent
died I decided to try this as I heard they are easy to grow and I liked the color.
My trouble is online there is little info on growing
them. First I read they need full sunglight to make the leaves turn purple, then I read on another site they prefer the shade. Then with watering I read they need to be watered once a month, except during winter. But I also read to water ONLY when leaves start to wilt and during winter to also water only when leaves start to shrivel. Which is it?
I have mine in cacti mix with extra perlite for drainage. It on a window sill which gets plenty of sunlight but in Winter gets to about 50 F.
I also had something odd with mine. One leaf was bright orange! I cannot find any others with a leaf this color, they are either green,purple, or for the variegated form bright pink, but never orange. The leaf fell off during packing and im trying to save it by it growing
roots. I also wondered can you cross pollinate 2 flowers
or do they open/close so quickly?
here is my plant.
