MOSS ROSE GROWING GUIDANCE
What To Expect (Day 1) :
Moss rose is an easy-care plant that produces quarter-sized flowers in a myriad of jewel-like colors. Moss rose is neither a rose nor moss, it’s actually a semi-succulent. This relationship to succulents make this plant easy to grow and drought tolerant, so do not overwater it and always allow for drainage between waterings.
Touchpoint 1 (Day 30) :
By now your moss roses should be growing out their succulent-like foliage. To keep the plant compact and bushier, prune the by pinching a long stem back to a leaf node (where a set of leaves grow from the stem). The leaves may begin to shed slightly, so simply wipe the fallen leaves away to keep your garden looking clean. You should begin to see flower buds soon - once a flower blooms, keep in mind that each blossom is short-lived, so if you see a dried or wilted flower, steadily pluck off the petals of a dried-up bloom and a new blossom will emerge in its place overnight - this process is called ‘deadheading’.
Harvest (Day 60) :
You should now have a full garden of multi-colored blossoms! You can now continue to prune and deadhead your garden to promote new flower growth or you can replant your garden and try something new! Moss roses can be harvested and dried for use in crafts, and the seed pods that are produced behind the petals of a flower can also be harvested and eaten raw or cooked in many dishes. If you’d like to transplant your moss roses outside instead of harvesting, simply take the entire SeedPod out of the SeedPod cup and bury about 3 inches into the soil.
