The Portulaca 9 O'clock is a low growing ground cover plant which is sometimes known as the sun rose or moss rose. These plants bear beautiful brightly coloured flowers. The Portulaca flowers splash bright colours across any grey background and make them a sight to the sore eyes.

These plants spread a positive vibe wherever they grow and the best part is they require minimum effort. Therefore, if you are looking for an easy way to beautify your garden, Portulaca is your plant.

Basic care

These plants require minimum care. They might prove to be invasive if not properly and regularly pruned.

Lighting

The Portulaca 9o' clock enjoys the full sunlight. Actually, full sunlight is one of the very few necessities of this plant.

Watering

The Portulacas are drought-resistant plants. Therefore it is better to water them less than more. Light watering is enough when the top soil feels dry.

Soil

These plants grow well in any kind of soil as long as it has good drainage properties. Portulacas grow well in sandy or loamy soil and even in any other poor soil provided they are well drained.

Fertilizing

These plants do not need much fertilizing. Overuse of fertilizers may result in a bushy foliage but fewer blossoms. Portulacas should be fertilized once every alternate week using a balanced liquid fertilizer.

Pruning

These plants grow rapidly. Therefore they tend to be invasive in nature. Proper and regular pruning is necessary to avoid such situations. The wilted blooms should be pinched off to prevent self-seeding.

Flowering

The yellow Portulaca 9o' clocks produce beautiful brightly coloured flowers which are yellow in colour. Apart from yellow, the flowers are also available in orange, pink or red flowers.

Pests

The plants are often infested by aphids or tiny, green insects that collect on the underside of the leaves.

Planting

While planting the seeds, there is no need to cover them with soil. If they are covered at all then make sure that they are covered lightly as they need the sunlight to germinate.

Benefits

As mentioned before, the Portulaca flowers are beautiful. Their bright colours make them look great if draped around stone statues or lined along a stone walk.

The plant is used in the treatment of hepatitis, cirrhosis of liver and swelling or pain in the pharynx.

The fresh juice of the leaves is used in case of insect or snake bites and burns.
