Oxalis triangularis "False shamrock"
Oxalis triangularis, native from Brazil, requires bright indirect sunlight, water only when soil feels dry, overwatering can cause plant rot, and both soil and pot need to have good drainage. A very important fact about this plant is that it has dormancy period, usually close to the summer, and it appears as if the plant has dried completely. When this happens, stop watering and give it a rest for approximately two weeks, and new leaves will grow. When new leaves are noticeable after dormancy, watering can be resumed. This plant is considered one of the most durable plants, living for generations if the proper care is given. This gorgeous plant’s leaves react to light, meaning that they move in response to the amount of light it receives. At night, it folds down its leaves, and then opens them widely when morning light appears.
