Care:

Succulents, known for their moisture-storing capacity, have evolved to survive hot environments. In general, the surrounding temperature should fall somewhere between 40 and 95 degrees F. They should be watered every 2 – 3 weeks. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. In the wintertime, you will need to water them less often. Overwatering can lead to leaf loss, misshapen leaves, root rot, and yellow leaves.

Most thrive with about 3 to 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Occasionally, too much sunlight can cause scorch marks and brown spots. With too little light, the plant may stretch its leaves outward.

These drought-resistant desert-dwellers are versatile and come in a variety of sizes, colors, and shapes. Be sure to research your specific succulent variety to provide the care it needs.

With this easy-to-grow plant, remember to err on the side of holding back on watering.

Description:

You’ll be surprised and delighted by the appearance of this succulent. The pink or purple leaves bloom brightly, appearing from late spring to early fall. Tiny, oval-shaped variegated leaves sport green middles and creamy edges that turn pink when given just enough sunlight. The lanky pink stems grow upwards, moving towards the sun. This succulent should be planted in well-draining soil and should only be watered when the soil is dry. Drought-tolerant, it will do well in high heat. Portulaca pilosa is an annual plant that needs relatively little care and attention, but be sure to remove it from the garden before it sets seed and takes over. This plant spreads easily if not controlled.
