How to Plant PORTULACA Seeds

  1. Sow seed in cell packs or individual pots, press into soil but do not cover.
  2. Needs light to germinate.
  3. Kept at 75-80° degrees F., germination is in 7-14 days.
  4. Transplant into the garden 5-8 inches apart.
  5. Seed can be started indoors (especially in cool climates) 6-8 weeks before transplanting.

Comments: Full Sun. Tolerates heat and drought, looks best with occasional water. Any soil with good drainage, thrives in sandy or gravelly soils. Can be cut back in summer to keep plants neat and to extend bloom into fall. Low maintenance, no deadheading required.
