How do you take care of purple Oxalis?
- Bring your plants indoors during the winter months. Purple oxalis is dormant in the winter, but will still need some basic care to keep it healthy for the next growing season.
- Fertilize once a month.
- Prune once a year.
- Choose the right soil.
- Water in moderation.
- Keep an eye out for pests.
Is Oxalis hard to take care of?
Some plants are hard to take care of (I’m thinking of a Fiddle leaf fig) but the Oxalis Triangularis is fairly low maintenance. Oxalis is a genus of the wood sorrel family and is well known for being an invasive weed in most gardens.
How long do Oxalis plants last?
Each flower can last up to three to five days, folding up at night to prevent the pollen being blown away in high winds. To get an Oxalis to flower annually, a good dormancy period must be served over the autumn and winter months with cooler temperatures and drying soil.
