The love plant, or Anacampseros Telephiastrum Variegata ‘Sunrise’, is a marvelous plant for containers. Pair easily with the Echeveria ‘Lola’ for similar slow growing, compact, container design, or use it to brighten up a Bromeliad container. These smaller succulents are originally from South Africa and as the get old will mound up to almost half a foot. Flowers pop up during the entire season here in Orange County, but definitely in the summer. The flowers actually open in the afternoon and close towards the evening and vary in colors. The leaves start as soft green and migrate into pink with yellow highlights as it wanders. The higher the light, the more yellow the plant will become, and too little light, will force more green growth. Test locations until you are able to see three distinct colors.
When encouraging a hoya to flower, it’s important to understand the stages of growth and everything your plant needs to produce its signature scented blooms.
