About Oxalis Triangularis (Purple Shamrock)

When to Plant

Oxalis Triangularis is typically grown as a houseplant, so planting can be done at any time of the year indoors. If planting outdoors, plant after the last frost in the spring.

Where to Plant

  • Indoor vs. Outdoor Planting: While Oxalis Triangularis is commonly grown indoors as a houseplant, it can also be planted outdoors in USDA hardiness zones 7-10, where winters are mild.
  • Sunlight: Oxalis Triangularis prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, especially in the morning, but it may scorch in intense afternoon sun. If planted outdoors, choose a location with filtered sunlight or partial shade.
  • Well-Drained Soil: Plant the bulbs in well-drained, slightly acidic to neutral soil. Good drainage is essential to prevent bulb rot.

How to Plant

  • Preparing the Soil: Ensure the soil is well-drained, and you may consider adding organic matter to improve fertility. If planting in containers, choose a pot with drainage holes.
  • Bulb Placement: Plant Oxalis Triangularis bulbs (rhizomes) with the pointed end facing up. Plant them at a depth of about 1 to 2 inches. Space multiple bulbs at least 6 to 8 inches apart.
  • Watering: Water the bulbs after planting to settle the soil. Keep the soil consistently moist during the growing season.

How to Care

  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry before watering again. Reduce watering during the plant's dormant period in winter.
  • Sunlight: Provide bright, indirect light for Oxalis Triangularis. If growing indoors, place the plant near a window with filtered sunlight. Outdoors, choose a location with partial shade.
  • Temperature and Humidity: Oxalis Triangularis prefers temperatures between 60°F to 75°F (15°C to 24°C). Protect it from drafts and extreme temperature fluctuations. It can withstand higher humidity, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor environments.
  • Fertilizing: Feed the plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4 to 6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or cease fertilizing in the fall and winter when the plant is dormant.
  • Pruning: Prune leggy or discolored stems to encourage bushier growth. Pinching the plant back can also help maintain a more compact shape.
  • Dormancy Period: Oxalis Triangularis typically goes through a period of dormancy in winter. During this time, the plant may shed its leaves. Reduce watering and stop fertilizing until new growth emerges in spring.
  • Pests and Diseases: Watch for pests like spider mites and aphids. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap. Oxalis Triangularis is generally resistant to most diseases. Ensure good air circulation to prevent fungal issues.
  • Overwintering: If grown outdoors in a region with cold winters, consider lifting the rhizomes in the fall after the foliage dies back. Store them in a cool, dry place and replant in the spring. can do this when the plant is actively growing, typically in the spring or early summer.
