It produces double flowers with additional petals and thick and fleshy leaves. The flower comes in a variety of colors from red, orange, pink, and white to yellow.

What size grow bag is best for Portulaca?

Portulaca Grandiflora Growing Season In India 

Portulaca is typically grown in India during late spring to early rainy Season (March to June) when warm and sunny conditions prevail. Avoid planting during the monsoon season and the cool winter months.

How To Grow Grandiflora Portulaca In Container 

Sow portulaca seeds directly in pots/grow bags or in the garden as they do not grow well with transplants. The optimum temperature for portulaca seed germination is 21-26°C. These are small flowering plants so you can plant portulaca in a 15- 35 cm  wide and deep pot or grow bag.

Portulaca Grandiflora Mixed Seeds Sowing Method 

Take a pot and fill them with potting mix soil and spread the portulaca Grandiflora seeds on the soil. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil and place the pot in a sunny spot as portulaca seeds need light to germinate. Water the soil and keep the soil lightly moist till germination and then water only when the top soil is dry. Portulaca seeds will germinate in 10-14 days.

Fertilizer Requirements For Portulaca Grandiflora

  • Moss roses or portulaca don’t need fertilizer, although at the time of planting you can add balanced, slow-release fertilizer (vermicompost, cow manure, or neem cake). This will encourage plant growth and enhance flowering.   
  • Additionally, add phosphorus-rich fertilizer during the growing season for more blooms. 

Grandiflora Portulaca Plant Care Tips 

Soil - Portulaca prefers dry, poor but well-draining soil and plants can die if grown in very wet soil.
Sunlight - If you want the best result and fast blooming, keep the portulaca plant in an area where it gets full sun for at least 6-8 hours. And don’t grow them in a shady spot. 
Water - Portulaca hates too much soil moisture and can tolerate dry soil conditions. As I said earlier once portulaca is established, it needs less water, deep watering per week is enough or you can give water when the top layer of soil becomes dry.
Temperature - Portulaca cannot survive in temperatures less than 5°C whereas the best temperature for growing portulaca is between 21-29°C.
Diseases - Portulaca has no pest and disease concerns but occasionally aphids and slugs create a problem. And crown rot infects the crown of a plant that occurs when portulaca grows in heavy or wet soil. This can cause leaves to turn yellow and wilt. You can use neem oil to control these insects and diseases.

Portulaca Grandiflora Bloom Time 

Usually, Grandiflora portulaca or purslane blooms from summer to fall (April - November). It takes 5-8 weeks after germination to flower.

FAQ

Why is my portulaca dying?

The main reason why portulaca plants die is excessive water in the soil, if you are facing this problem then do not overwater and use soil with good drainage.

Can you grow portulaca indoors?

You can sow portulaca seeds indoors but once established, keep them outside where they can get enough sunlight as they may not grow well indoors once germinated.

I'm editing the review because the helpline was really helpful... I'll give 5 star when I see true leaves! Say about after 2 weeks

Based on the image you sent, it appears that your Portulaca grandiflora seedlings are germinating, but they have not yet developed their true leaves. There are a few possible reasons for this:
The seedlings are not getting enough light. Portulaca grandiflora seedlings need bright light to grow properly. If they are not getting enough light, they may be slow to develop their true leaves.
The seedlings are being overwatered. Portulaca grandiflora seedlings prefer moist soil, but they should not be soggy. If the seedlings are being overwatered, they may be more susceptible to damping off, a fungal disease that can kill young seedlings.

Here are a few tips for helping your Portulaca grandiflora seedlings develop their true leaves:

Provide them with bright light. Place the seedlings under a grow light or in a sunny window.
Water them only when the soil is dry to the touch. Be careful not to overwater them.

Thin the seedlings if they are too crowded. Once the seedlings have developed their first true leaves, you can thin them out to about 2 inches apart.

With proper care, your Portulaca grandiflora seedlings should develop their true leaves within a few weeks.

Once they have, you can begin to fertilize them with a half-strength liquid fertilizer. You can also transplant them to their permanent home outdoors once the danger of frost has passed.
