Oxalis Triangularis AKA Purple Shamrock or False Shamrock is a pretty low maintenance and beautifully decorative house plant with vivid purple leaves and bell shaped flowers. They react to the light, closing their blooms and leaves at night and opening them again at morning light.
The Oxalis may occasionally have a dormant period as part of its natural growth cycle, however it will ‘come back to life’. When this happens, do not water it and let the soil dry out. A few weeks later, new leaves will grow and watering can resume.
