Oxalis triangularis are long-lived, easy to care houseplants with extra charm. They are highly “photophilic,” which means that they open and close not just their blooms, but also their leaves in response to light. At night, neatly folded, oxalis triangularis looks like a cluster of little purple butterflies that then open wide to the morning light. Both the vivid purple color of its leaves and this constant slow motion seems to enchant all who grow it – even “non-gardeners” fall in love this charming beauty.
Light: Keep your Oxalis Triangularis in a filtered bright to medium light but away from direct light. It grows well in morning light (i.e. East window).
Water: Allow the soil to dry half way between watering, ensure the top 2cm of soil is dry before watering. The worst thing you can do with bulbs is overwater as it will rot the bulb.
DO'S AND DONT'S AFTER RECEIVING THE PLANT:
- Do not re-pot the plant immediately after receiving. We’ve taken care of that with better pot and rich soil.
- Check for the moisture level once you receive the plant. If its optimally moist do not water the plant. If the potting mixture is half dry then water the plant.
