Shamrocks or Oxalis- red


Shamrock Plant Care Tips

Origin: Mexico

Height: 6-12 in (15-30 cm)

Light: Bright light with some direct sun. Leggy, spindly growth is often caused by lack of light. Move the plant to a spot where it will get curtain-filtered light from a sunny window.

Water: Allow surface of soil to dry between waterings. Shamrock plant retains water in its tuberous roots and won’t tolerate soggy soil.

Humidity: Average indoor (around 40-50% relative humidity). If indoor air is dry, you can boost humidity for your plant by setting it on a pebble tray or use a cool-mist room humidifier.

Temperature: Cool to average 55-65°F/13-18°C at night, not warmer than 75°F/24°C during the day.

Soil: Any good-quality potting mix

Fertilizer: Feed monthly in spring and summer with a balanced water-soluble fertilizer diluted by half.

Propagation: Divide the plant by gently pulling apart its small, tuberous roots into smaller clumps and potting them in separate containers. Don’t bury them too deep; set the tubers 1/2″ below the soil. Sow shamrock seeds in spring.
