Portulaca Grandiflora

The pretty Portulacas are doing spectacularly well in the sunshine. With water from the fish tank and some pest control, they are blooming beautifully.

They were constantly infested with Mealy bugs. Spraying them wasn't effective as they had a white waxy coat. I found that dabbing them with turpentine worked as the solvent dissolved the waxy protective coating.
