I think it looks fine, if you give it more sun (not direct) the leaves will become darker,what kind of soil are you using? I tend to let mine dry out a little between waterings.

Hi & welcome!

Looks fine! The color & intensity of it depends on light exposure. For more bold color, more/brighter light. Pics in this plants' entry in the database show its' many moods.

When the pot feels significantly lighter than when just watered, that's usually a good gauge that it's dry enough to need a drink. I would encourage not misting this plant. It doesn't need it, and could result in facilitating surface pathogens. But, if you have the patience to mist the soil to moisten it, in lieu of pouring water, that's wonderful, and helps keep the soil from compacting from the force of gushing water.

If you're able to put your plant outside in the shade for summer, it would really enjoy that & almost surely grow faster during that time than while inside.

Looking good! Did you bring it in to take its' pic?

There's a forum for Portulaca/purslane here. It might be best to ask about that over there.
