On the Sill | Oxalis

Oxalis - oxalis triangularis

Another common name for this plant is a shamrock however it is not as it is in the oxalidaceae family. This plant is native to several countries in South America & South Africa. This plant I thought to bring good luck to those who own it.

LIGHT- Bright indirect - medium is what this plant grows best in. Direct sun can result in leaf burn. A east window with morning light is a great location for this plant.

WATER- Allow the soil to dry out halfway between waterings. Everyone 1-2 weeks for watering if you have it in brighter light it'll probably need more water.

PRUNING - You can remove any dead or damaged leaves at any time & spent flower stocks once they're done blooming by cutting the stalk down to the base of the plant. These plants are known to go dormant in the summer so you want see much active growth once they're finished blooming. The best way to propagate this plant is by division. When repotting simple removes some bulbs & grow them in a new pot.

TOXICITY - Although this plant is rarely fatal it can cause kidney failure if large amounts are ingested. Best to keep out of reach of our fur babies.
