Oxalis triangularis - 'Iron Cross Shamrock'
Light conditions: This plant prefers bright direct light or 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 very dry before watering. Do not over-water, as their thick trunks store a large amount of water! Reduce watering in the winter while the plants are in a dormant mode. The plant may die back into its bulb if neglected for too long but should come back in the next growing season.
Humidity: Low to average Humidity
Ideal Temperature: Prefers warmer conditions. Keep away from drafty windows, heat vents or air conditioners and maintain a room temperature of 20C+.
Soil/Nutrients: Regular tropical soil mix. Although fertilizer is not necessary for plants with sufficient soil minerals. You can help enhance growth and overall plant health by using fertilizer during active growing times. Aim to repot during active growing times.
Good to know: Plants that have just been shipped will be stressed, they may not look as beautiful as the picture and will need time to bounce back. How would you look after being in a dark box for a few days? Most plants will need a good drink, place in medium light and increase after a few days if needed. Do not repot for at least two weeks to avoid stressing plants out further.
