By the way how often do you water them?

Mine only get the overspray from the lawn sprinklers. I've hear that the only way to kill them is too much water. They seem to be going great so far

I have found that they do not like a lot of water. I have kept the container soggy before and that makes the leaves get all rotten

I like them too. They are tuff. We mix them with Ice Plants.

This year for the first time I planted them by seed packet. I am really impatient when it comes to flowers but the moss rose is finally blooming. Love them and it was only a dollar. Cha-ching! In fact, I think I am going to start using seed packets for most of my flowers.

I have moss rose, not in a planter, but in the garden. I've heard they don't like much water too, and their stems look like they're succulents. So when we got 10" of rain in about 10 days, I was afraid they'd sog out but they look spectacular. I guess if you've got good drainage you don't have to worry you get too much precipitation for them.

I have two hanging baskets of Moss Roses on the front porch. They get a lot of sun but sometimes one doesn’t open it’s flowers while the other receiving exactly the same exposure to the sun always opens? Anyone see anything like this?

Have you tried switching the positions of the two baskets on the porch to see what happens? I have two hanging baskets on the front pillars of my front porch and they don't get exactly the same amount of sun..even though they may appear to. I rotate them regularly. If that solves the problem then it's sunlight. Be sure not to overwater. Fertilizer boost in the one might help too.

Love these plants. I planted 3 flats of moss roses in one area of my landscape and not in basket/planters this year. As much as I really like them they are no longer an option for that application. The deer loved dining on them in the evening.
