Planting and care

  • Water the plant only when the top of the soil is dry, as portulaca is a drought-tolerant plant that thrives in dry, desert-like soil
  • Fertilize portacula every other week, using a liquid fertilizer with a balanced ratio such as 20-20-20
  • Alternatively, apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in midsummer
  • Pinch off wilted blooms to prevent the plant from self-seeding
  • Check portulaca often for aphids, tiny, green insects that gather on the undersides of the leaves or at the joints of the stems and leaves
