Purslane (in the genus Portulaca) are spreading succulents that may have originated in Europe or North Africa. Both our own purslane and our patented portulaca perform well in heat and drought and naturally load up with small, colorful blooms. Use purslane in hanging baskets or as colorful cascading elements in combination planters.


Growing Tips

 

For best results with Purslane, we recommend using a constant feed program of 200 ppm N. Maintain a pH between 6.0 - 6.5.

Pinching

Pinching is recommended 5-10 days after transplantation. A second pinch may be necessary depending on the size and shape of the final pot.

Spacing

Space pots adequately to allow for light penetration and airflow between foliage of adjacent pots. We recommend 6-8 inches for 4” pots and 18-24 inches for 10” pots.

Height Control

Maintaining high light intensity and pinching are the best way to control height. An initial pinch is recommended, but additional pinching may be necessary to shape your final product.

Pests

Aphids and thrips are the biggest pest problems with Purslane.

Disease

Big Bloom Assorted are not prone to many diseases, but watch for botrytis while the days are short. This grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. The most common chemicals used to treat botrytis are Medallion and Banrot. Use them as a drench according to each label’s instructions.

Planting Big Bloom Assorted Liners

  1. We recommend planting 4-5 starter plants per 10 inch basket. Use a well-drained soil in your baskets and plant your starter plants deep, allowing the ellepot to be completely covered by the soil. If you are planting 4” pots, 1 plant per pot should be sufficient if you have enough time. Plant it directly in the middle of your pot.
  2. Pinching is recommended 5-10 days after transplantation. A second pinch may be necessary depending on the size and shape of the final pot.

Rooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
