Cultivation and Maintenance

The ‘Anacampseros Telephiastrum’ is a magnificent addition to any garden or indoor space. Cultivating and maintaining this succulent plant is a breeze.

Light: This succulent thrives in bright, indirect light. In its natural habitat, it often grows in arid regions with plenty of sunlight. When cultivated indoors, place the plant near a south-facing window where the environment is similar to its nature. However, limiting the time it stays under intense, direct sunlight is essential as it can lead to sunburn and damage the delicate leaves.

Soil and Watering: I want to say that it’s crucial not to overwater it. This plant prefers well-draining soil like many succulents and should be watered sparingly. So, that is why you should allow the top inch of soil to dry out between watering sessions.

Temperatures: In general, try to keep it in a room where the temperature stays between 60°F (15°C) and 80°F (27°C). It can handle a bit of a chill at night, but make sure it doesn’t go below 50°F (10°C).

Fertilizer: In spring and summer, when it’s growing, you can use a special liquid food for succulents. Mix it with water, but not too strong – make it weaker than what the bottle says. Feed your succulent about once a month when it’s growing, but don’t give it any food in the winter. It’s like letting it take a break.
