The scientific name of this succulent plant is Anacampseros rufescens, but it is more commonly known as Sand Rose or Sunrise Succulent due to its pink rosettes and native habitat. It also produces pink, star shaped flowers.
Size: 8.5cm pot
Origin: South Africa
Light: Very bright indirect light, some direct sun (protect from strongest midday hours)
Watering: Allow half of the soil to dry between waterings when the plant is actively growing, usually from spring through autumn. Reduce watering frequency in winter if light levels are lower and allow the soil to dry completely between waterings.
Feeding: Use half the recommended dose of a balanced liquid fertilizer every few weeks from spring through autumn, or whenever you can see active growth.
Soil: Well draining soil mix or a soil mix made for cactus.
Troubleshooting: Like all succulent plants, the leaves of the Desert Rose hold and store water and therefore does not need to be watered as often as a leafy houseplant. Wrinkly leaves may be an indication that the plant needs to be watered. Succulents need warm temperatures and a lot of light. Not getting enough light might cause leaf loss and etiolated growth.
Tip: This plant can be mildly toxic if ingested, so we advise to keep it away from pets and children.
