Oxalis Triangularis is one of the most sought-after houseplants thanks to its beautiful dark chocolate, deep purple color, and ease of care. These are mostly perennial plants, with rhizomes that profoundly grow leaves, divided into three leaflets like clovers, which resemble a butterfly. They flower abundantly and can be grown inside or outside.
This order includes the bulb/rhizome and not the full plant. The bulbs look like tiny immature pinecones.

- Light: Thrives in bright indirect to bright direct light.

- Humidity: Any humidity level will do. Normal room humidity is fine.
- Temperature: Best not to let it go below 60°F (15°C).
- Fertilize: Once a month during the growing season using a slow-release blend. Pruning: Pinch off any dead foliage.
- Propagation: You can get your oxalis to reproduce once a year by propagation - separation of the rhizomes.
