Description

The purple-leaf shamrock, Oxalis Triangularis, is a low-growing foliage plant for the garden that also makes for an attractive indoor plant with rich, vibrant, purple leaves. ... Indoors, it can fill a pot with rich, purple leaves and add a dash of colour to the often green indoor plant world. Oxalis Triangularis has three purple heart shaped leaves. The overall effect is that they end up looking like a trio of butterflies joined together by their noses. Oxalis is not overly fussy with its light requirements. However for a good looking plant you're going to want an area which receives bright light, or even some sun for a few hours a day. Don't overdo the sunshine though, too much sun will damage the leaves. Ideally soak the soil and then allow the top inch or so to dry out before watering again.

How to care for your plants

  • Delivered via overnight courier, safely packed and wrapped upright in a box.

  • Your plant’s pot should have holes in the bottom so it is able to drain water easily.

  • If reusing a pot that had other plants in it, it is recommended you wash the pot, killing any mould or bacteria.

  • Do not over water your plant as the roots will rot.

  • Most plants need to be kept by a good source of natural light.

  • You should fertilise your plant every two months. You can use all purpose fertiliser.

  • Any dead or fallen leaves should be removed to prevent bacteria and mould. Dead branches should also be removed.
