Native to the warm tropical climates of South America, the Oxalis is a perennial plant and has over 800 species! The Oxalis traiangularis 'Green/Francis' is the one most commonly cultivated as a houseplant, followed by the tetraphylla 'Iron Cross'. It is also known as a wood sorrel or a false shamrock, because of its trifoliate leaf shape. 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. Fun fact - they raise and lower 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.
When you water, rotate the pot so the opposite side faces the window to ensure that the foliage grows evenly on all sides.
The plant comes with a default nursery 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.
