Flower Bloom in my Garden

in WORLD OF XPILAR11 months ago

Flower name-Portulaca

It is a succulent and has very beautiful flowers and would recommend it to any flower plant lover.

It blooms primarily in the Summer season.

Growing conditions-

Pot- The pot should be preferably more wider than its depth which would help the roots to grow more laterally rather than vertically, enhancing the proper growth of the plant.

Soil-Should be well-draining to prevent rotting of roots. Soil should consist of a mixture of sand, garden soil, compost, etc.

Water-Minimal. In Summer, water 2-3 times per week whenever the top 1-2 inches layer of soil seem dry. In Winter, water 1-2 times or less per month as the plant goes dormant.

Sunlight- Keep the plant outside in full sun during both Summer and Winter seasons.

Rain-Continuous rain can cause root rot and damage the plant. Hence, soil mixture should allow no storage of water and drain the water almost immediately.

Fertilizer-A mixture of bone-meal, DAP, etc. before the Blooming season starts should be applied per month as per the size of the plant for production of continuous flowers.
