  • Portulaca, Sundial Hybrid Mix is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exquisite bedding plants We have been growing Sundial Hybrid portulaca for a number of years at our farm in Monroe County, Wisconsin. They can be very tricky to get started but once going they are unstoppable and flower until the frost. We start them in 2" x 2" plastic cells in flats using a dampened, sterile growing medium. It they aren't pelletized, the seeds are nearly microscopic so getting an even spread is difficult. I use a shallow measuring spoon - 1/2 teaspoon - to scoop up the seeds, then tap the handle while moving slowly over the flat at a height of 6-8" above the medium. I try to spread a few at a time and make several passes. I then cover the flat with plastic film and put a sheet of newspaper over that. The newspaper keeps the flat from overheating if sunlight or bright room light should fall on it. The seeds sprout in about a week at room temperature, with tiny filaments showing above the medium. At this point we remove the newspaper and plastic film and keep the seedlings moist with a mister until they show leaves (2 weeks?). After that we are set - the seedlings will do just fine in a sunny window until they are ready to plant - maybe a month later. Have fun!
