information: Shamrock plants are quite
popular for Saint Patrick's Day. Indoor potted Shamrock
plants are grown from small bulbs.
After you have had your Shamrock plant
for a month or two it will start declining in appearance. Don't
worry you didn't do anything wrong, it just the nature of the
plant. Similar to your outdoor Tulip bulbs, the plant needs to rest.
After its resting period it will come back to life again. In most
cases when indoor potted Shamrocks decline... they are discarded
and a new indoor flowering house plant is purchased.
Indoors place your Shamrock plant in bright indirect light.
Keep the soil moist fertilizing only once while the plant is still
vibrant looking. Eventually your plant will start to decline in
health. It is possible to re-grow your plant but first it must go
dormant. Stop watering the Oxalis and allow all the leaves to
naturally dry up and fall off. Don't pick the leaves off trying to
speed the process. Once the leaves have dried and fallen off
move your Shamrock plants to a cool dark area for a 4 week dormancy period.
After 4 weeks return your plant to its original place in the house
or office. Water and
fertilize your Shamrock and new growth should begin to
