Planting and care

Leaves are in a range of shades and delicate flowers bloom off and on during fall, winter and spring. Leaves of few varieties are clover shaped and some think the plant brings good luck. These leaves fold up at night and open when light returns.

SunlightSoilWaterTemperatureFertilizer
Full sun. A well-shaded spot within the home from direct sunlight is ideal. Sat back from a window in a bright room is suitable, but if the room is more north facing, place much closer to the window.Most potting mixes that drain well, which are also well aerated will do the trick.One of the worst things you can do with bulbs is over-water, which rots the bulb. Allowing the soil to begin to dry at the top is a good measurement of when to water again. Remember to stop watering if the plant becomes dormant.Temperature: Between 60 to 70 degrees F (15 - 21 degrees C) no higher than 75 degrees F to 24 degrees C seems to be the ideal temperatures during the day and no lower than about 55 degrees F (13 degrees C) during the night.A diluted liquid fertilizer is helpful to use during the growing period. Feed once every 1 or 2 weeks. No feeding is required during dormancy.

Caring for Oxalis

  • After blooming has finished for the season leave the foliage in place; do not cut it off.
  • The leaves will gather sunlight, create food through photosynthesis and strengthen the bulb for the future.
  • Late in the summer or in fall the leaves will yellow and die back as the plant slips into dormancy. Foliage may be removed at this point.
  • Your oxalis will rest for a while beginning the next growing cycle in early spring.
  • Oxalis may attract aphids, whiteflies or spider mites. Because these plants have regular dormancy periods you can isolate your plant from any of your other plants and wait until the leaves fall to get rid of the pests.
  • Be very sure that the pests cannot reach other plants and clean the area of all fallen leaves thoroughly.
  • Wipe down all of the surfaces using a diluted 50/50 alcohol/water solution if possible.
  • A common ailment is rotting roots. If you suspect the yellowing of the leaves is not the normal dormancy period approaching you can take a look at the roots.
  • If they are no longer a fresh white and are soft you may have rotted them.
  • You may be able to save it if there are bulblets or tubers that look sturdy by re-potting it but you may just have to toss the plant into the compost bin and begin again.
