Portulaca Happy Hour Mix Seed
Celebrate success with the Happy Hour portulaca series that has been bred for reduced day length sensitivity, particularly in the southern parts of the country. Well-branched mounded plants that are less prone to breakage flower uniformly and under shorter days than other leading portulaca series. The fuller plant habit with a vivid flower color range creates eye-appeal at retail and performs admirably in hot, full sun garden conditions.
Color: Formula mix of Happy Hour Banana, Coconut, Deep Red, Fuchsia, Lemon, Orange, Peppermint, and Rosita
Important Germination Note: This variety is offered in multi-pelleted seed. Germination issues are common when moisture levels are not properly maintained. Water management for multi-pelleted seed is similar to that of a clay pellet. Simply water-in these pellets and follow the recommended crop culture for the variety or mix. The water-soluble wax of these pellets takes longer to completely dissolve even when fully submerged in water. Do not attempt to dissolve the pellet within a single watering. Instead, maintain a moisture level of four to five (medium wet to saturated) from sowing until the pellet is fully dissolved. Maintain high relative humidity in the germination environment along with adequate soil moisture, exposing the seed to proper germination conditions. The use of plastic domes or regular misting is helpful in keeping the adequate moisture until the seed germinates. Once the sowing stage begins, if the pellets dry out, they become hard to dissolve. This is why we highly recommend high moisture content right from the beginning.
