Anacampseros telephiastrum ‘Variegata’is a freely branching leaf succulent that forms low clumps or mats up to a height of 15 centimetres. Leaves are green, bright pink and yellow or cream-colored leaves. Flowers are pink and up to 1.4 inches (3.5 cm) in diameter and appear in afternoon in summer. 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.
Watering: It likes a winter's rest and should be kept in the dry side during the winter months. From early spring onwards the plant will begin to grow, and watering should be increased gradually until late spring when the plant should be in full growth.
Hardiness: Keep dry at 5- 10° C in winter but can tolerate sporadic light frost if kept on the dry side prior to, and during, cold weather. Pots may be placed outdoors during the summer months but must be moved indoors during the winter. USDA zones 9-11
Exposition: The plant tolerates bright situations, if kept too dark they may become overly lush and greener and could be prone to rotting due to over watering. Strong but filtered light encourages flowering but is likely to suffer from sun scorch or stunted growth if over exposed to direct sunlight during the hottest part of the day in summer.
