Type 4 Plant
Otherwise known as ‘purple shamrock’, this is an ideal low maintenance plant that will thrive indoors all year round. It’s very hard not to fall in love with this plant given all its charm. The leaves open and close like butterfly wings every morning and evening in response to light, and they’ll often reward you with delicate, bell shaped white/pinkish flowers if they’re happy.
Oxalis produce little bulbs within their root mass which makes propagation extremely easy. Left to their own devices this plant will rapidly put out new shoots and fill any pot of its own accord, but these bulbs can be snapped apart and re-planted to produce multiple generations of offspring.
Oxalis will thrive in a bright spot such as a windowsill. Keep the water moist but not soggy. If the soil gets too dry the leaves will stay closed and the stems will droop, but it’ll soon bounce back if you give it a good water.
