Oxalis triangularis | Purple Shamrock | False shamrock
Oxalis triangularis, commonly called 'purple shamrock' or 'false shamrock' due to its triangular leaves of deep purple, is a very good houseplant for the beginner This plant is photophilic, which means that when the light at the end of the day begins to reduce, the foliage of this plant folds up for the night, re-opening again in the morning.
Each plant measures approx 10cm in height and 5cm in width.
PLEASE NOTE THAT MY EXPERIENCE HAS SHOWN THAT THIS PLANT IS VERY LIKELY AND/OR GUARANTEED TO GO LIMP DURING POSTAGE BUT SHOULD RECOVER QUICKLY IF POTTED UP QUICKLY AND KEPT MOIST UPON ARRIVAL. PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS PLANT IF YOU ARE NOT OK WITH THIS.

Although I love my plant, it was way smaller than I expected especially considering the price. I was happy with the service - super quick
Happy reliable quick to deliver.
have bought 3 times
And always happy with plant.
Plant was in reasonable health considering shipping was delayed for 3 extra days. The packaging was also sufficient to keep the plant in decent shape.
The plant itself is quite leggy, I think it could be a better idea to sell Oxalis bulbs separately rather than whole plants.
