Oxalis Shamrock

$18

Oxalis Triangularis, aka False Shamrock, gets its name from its trifoliate leaf shape. The Oxalis traiangularis 'Green/Francis' is the one most commonly cultivated as a houseplant, followed by the tetraphylla 'Iron Cross' and 'purple'. They open and close their leaves from day to night as a part of their circadian rhythm.

Thrives in bright indirect light and can take some bright direct light, too. It can handle a few hours of direct sun.
The minimum light requirement for them is 0 - 3 feet away from the nearest light source. A good bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window. They love lots of light and can take sunbath for a few hours, too.
Water every 1 - 2 weeks, allowing the soil to dry out halfway down between waterings. Increase the frequency with increased light.
They can live in any humidity condition.
Oxalis do best in warm and sunny conditions. During the wintertime, most oxalis kept as houseplants will be through a semi-dormant phase if not receiving enough light. But come spring, they’ll bounce back in all their glory.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.

They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They can live in any average home humidity condition and are fairly hardy.

During the wintertime, most oxalis kept as houseplants will go through a semi-dormant phase. They are grown via tubers in the soil, which can be collected and stored in a dark, cool place over the winter and then replant them in the early spring. Come springtime, they’ll bounce right back in all their glory.
