Anacampseros lanceolata, commonly known as the spear-leaved Anacampseros, is a low growing succulent plant in the purslane family, Portulacaceae. A. lanceolata is native to the northern cape of South Africa. The plant has a creeping growth habit that forms mats of succulent lance shaped leaves. A. lanceolata grows up to 6 inches tall with light green leaves that measure no more than an inch in height. The tips of the leaves are commonly known to turn red with more exposure to sunlight. Anacampseros lanceolata blooms in late spring with bell shaped light pink to purple flowers. This species is grown as an ornamental plant for ground cover and bright flowers. A. lanceolata grows best in well draining soil, sitting in full sun to partial shade. Water the plant adequately during warm seasons and sparingly to none during winter as it is prone to rot. Allow the soil to completely dry out in between waterings. USDA plant hardiness zones 8a to 11b.

Anacampseros lanceolata seeds require consistent moisture and humidity to germinate, but the soil should not remain soaking wet. Cloning boxes, ziplock bags, and other containers that retain humidity are ideal to store sown pots. Use a well-draining sterilized soil mix. Seeds should be sown directly on top of the potting mixture and lightly covered with a thin layer of sand or potting mix, just enough to cover the seeds. Germinating pots should be kept indoors, out of extreme light and heat. Ideal germination temperatures range from 70°F to 85°F. Germination typically takes 2 to 3 weeks to occur. Even with optimal conditions, germination may be slow and sporadic.
