  • They will do the BEST in full sun. I had them in a shady area (only morning Sun) and they didn't flower as profusely as the ones that had sun all day. Good luck!!

  • Portulaca flowers prefer full sun and they also like a little Fertilizer(Miracle Grow) with watering. Are you keeping them in a pot or in the ground Mine always seemed to do better in a pot IDK could just be in my Zone.
