General Information

Seeds may be sown at the end of April and the seedlings thinned to be 4 inches apart. The seed should not be deeply covered.
The plants are of a creeping habit, the leaves being moss like and almost hidden by the flowers. The seeds, which resemble iron filings, have a metallic lustre and are produced in a small, boxlike capsule; when ripe the lid falls off and reveals them.

Moss rose is the most common portulaca you may find.

Donít fertilize too much; it will encourage plants to produce thick foliage but fewer flowers.
