Anacampseros is the ancient name for an herb that was supposed to restore lost love. The genus Anacampseros used to have a larger number of species. It has now been split in 3 genera; Anacampseros and Avonia, both Indigenous to South Africa, and Grahamia with species in the Americas and Australia. Anacampseros is placed in the Portulacaceae family. Plants in this genus are characterized by rosettes of highly fleshy leaves. Depending on the species, the leaves can be lance-shaped to almost round. Some plants are covered in fine hairs, while others have scaly formations on their leaves. Generally they don’t grow much taller than 8cm. Flowers appear in the summer months and may be pink or purple, opening during the heat of the day and closing again in the evening. Most Anacampseros species favour bright indirect light and rich, well-drained soil. The soil should be allowed to drain completely between watering and should be fortified with enrichments in the spring to encourage the plant to emerge fully from winter semi-dormancy.
In nature Anacampseros retusa grows to a height only 2cm but cultivated specimens may be as high as 6cm. From the Northern and Western Cape Provinces of the Republic of South Africa, this small, proliferous species clusters from a caudex. The densely packed leaves are wedge-shaped, and they are an attractive brownish green. The flower petals are purplish pink.
