Growing purslane indoors

Zone Waterloo, Ontario, Canada | Anonymous added on September 29, 2016 | Answered

I'm trying to grow purslane indoors to use in my salad. I've already started, but the growing feels very slow. I bought flowers and vegetable soil and did not add any fertilizer. It is getting fall-winter is on the door, so when it is sunny I take the pods outside, and when it's cloudy I keep them inside. After 3 weeks, the plants are about an 1.25" tall and grown about 2 big leaves and 2 small leaves have just appeared. But many grown seeds died and others are keep dying. Could you please let me know how to grow this plant year around indoors. Thank you

    You will need to provide the plants with 6 to 8 hours of sunlight. Using a plant grow light system would help.

    Here is a link with growing information.
