A good time is after the winter dormancy in spring.
Bright with morning sun or evening sun.
Mixes for indoor plants, herbs, vegetables or bird sand. As it can be seen clearly in the pictures, I used bird sand.
59 to 86 °F (15 to 30 °C)
New growth after
At 68 to 72 °F (20 to 22 °C) the first roots and leaves appear after 7 to 10 days.
So that the small rhizome cuttings do not become dry, it is good if the growing pot is covered. Once the leaves are about five centimeters high, the covering can be removed.
The wild type of Oxalis triangularis is native to South America (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay).
This member of the wood sorrel family, which is known as False Shamrock, can grow up to 25 centimeters in height and show its flowers from late spring to fall.
In addition to the popular red-leaved cultivars, varieties with speckled leaves are also available. Which can bloom in pink or white.
