Every other day there are one or two flowers opening late and flowering shortly for two hours or so, closing quickly and as tight as the bud was. Just sometimes a little part of one of the petals is tucked in between the two sepals – one of the defining characterisitcs of the portulacaceae family: two sepals and 5 petals – revealing that this ‘bud’ has already flowered.
None of them has dropped until now. So, with a bit of luck I’ll get a few seeds from this first flowering! But one thing for sure: if you really plan to wear some flowers in your hair, you’d better choose some more hard-wearing flower than Anacampseros!
