Planting And Care
Water a plant when the soil feels dry to touch. Water thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering for the winter & rainy season.
Try to water the plants in the morning around 8-10 am.
You should remove dead, infected, or damaged plant parts and throw in the garbage collector.
You should prune and fertilize a plant mostly in the spring season.
When a plant grows beyond its limit and pot size does not provide enough space for the spread of roots, re-pot with fresh soil and some fertilizer.
While repotting, try not to disturb the roots. Avoid any drastic change in the provided environment otherwise, the plants may get stress/shock.
For any insect attack or disease, you can use Neem oil, Eucalyptus oil, or Citrus oil spray for primary treatment.
Portulacas love it hot and dry. You can plant them in poor, even sandy, soil. They also adapt to average garden conditions. Just give them full sun and any well-drained soil. Water them after planting and watch them go.
Propagation of portulaca is seeds and cutting. The best season for planting is the early monsoon and spring season.
