Shamrock Plant Care

Temperature: Temperature: Between 60 - 70°F (15 - 21°C) "no higher than 75°F - 24°C" seems to be the ideal temperatures during the day and no lower than about 55°F (13°C) during the night.
Light: A good 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.
Watering: 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.
Soil: Most potting mixes that drain well, which are also well aerated will do the trick.
Fertilizer: 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.
Re-Potting: You may want to re-pot your plant once every 1 - 2 years (during dormancy period) and use the same pot or move up a size bigger, unless your removing offsets which reduces the size of the plant "or keeps it to the same size".
Humidity: Average room humidity is fine.
Propagation: If you want to propagate your oxalis triangularis you'll find it's best to do this towards the end of it's dormant period (I would do this after 2 weeks of dormancy to be sure of timing). The bulb will have to be removed from the pot and then you may remove the small bulb offsets which are re-potted to produce new plants. Be patient with the new plants and expect them to appear a little later than the main plant.
