Oxalis is typically grown as a house plant but does like to be grown outdoors in light shade. Oxalis is a great choice for low borders and patio containers. Produces shamrock-shaped foliage ranging in color from deep burgundy to bright green with dainty flowers.

Indoor Planting: Expand the soil disc, following the directions. Fill the nursery pot with 4/5 of the medium. Distribute the bulbs evenly on top of soil and cover with the remaining soil. Water well. Maintain moisture by not letting the pot dry out. After Care: After a period of active growth, the plant should be allowed to rest or go dormant. The first sign that a plant is entering dormancy is leaf die-back. If this begins to occur, stop watering and fertilizing the plant. Leaves can then be cut back or allowed to die-back on their own. The plant should be moved to a cool, dark place for one to three months, after which new foliage will start emerging from the soil. When this occurs, move the plant to a full sun location and restart the process all over again by watering and fertilizing.
Refrigerate plants until ready to plant.
