5 cuts of 5 inches

If you are a lover of succulents and flowers, you have to discover this plant! One that, although it has an immense beauty, is little known and, what is even better, more than simple to grow. Because, despite appearances, how to care for the Portulaca is almost as easy as growing one more succulent. But there is a caveat: in no other species of this immense botanical family we will find such a spectacular flowering.

Root the cuttings in water if you’re not going to plant them right away. Fill a cup or jar with enough water to cover half the stem. Remove the leaves that will be submerged in the water. Cuttings can develop short roots in a few days.

Once the roots sprout, transfer the portulaca to a growing tray to encourage them to grow even more.

You can temporarily store the portulaca in water while you prepare the soil.

Or if you already have the soil ready, plant the cutting in a pot with well-draining soil, I recommend this option more from my own experience. And thus avoid stress to the plant by moving its roots from the water to the ground, since in the ground it establishes itself faster. Put it in a tray or pot filled with commercial potting mix. Push the cutting 1 inch (2.5 cm) deep into the soil. Then, gently press the soil to compact it and water to moisten the soil, do not puddle as it will rot the cutting. Move the pot to a sunny place so that the cuttings receive a lot of light, but not direct sun as they could burn because they still do not have roots, after a week put it in direct sun to bloom, in climates of more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit it is advisable to put it to receive the morning sun as it is less aggressive and avoid the sun of the late so it doesn’t burn the plant.

It is advisable to grow cuttings in pots with soil for cacti and succulents.
