Oxalis tetraphylla deppii
Light conditions: This plant prefers bright direct light or bright indirect light. Rotate periodically to keep its shape.
If you notice leaf burn move the plant away from direct sunlight. Sufficient lighting is needed for flowering.
Watering: Wait until the top layer of soil is dry before watering. You will notice that the leaves start to droop when the plant is thirsty.
Oxalis have a dormancy period, so it is completely normal if your plant loses all their leaves. If this happens, completely stop watering until you notice new sprouts appear. Once new sprouts are visible, maintain a lightly humid soil
Humidity: Low to average humidity
GOOD TO KNOW
If your plants were shipped to you, unwrap them and remove wood shavings from soil (if any). They maybe thirsty, so give 'em a drink of water if needed
Did you know we treat our plants with beneficial mites and insects to keep away the baddies? Even though, we still recommend keeping new plants isolated for ~7 days to monitor for pests, regardless of where they're from.
Whether you live around the corner or across the country, moving is stressful for plants. Don't be alarmed by leaf loss, browning or yellowing, or a little light wear & tear! Please don't repot or fertilise for at least two weeks to avoid stressing plants out further. This will compromise our 14 day guarantee.
