Plant Experimentation: Oxalis Triangularis (Purple Shamrock), Day 15.

The color differences in the leaves of my purple shamrock are beginning to become noticeable. The leaves are getting much larger. They keep reaching for the window, so I turn the pot once or twice throughout the day.

There is also this new little growth pushing it’s way through the soil. The weird thing is that it looks very different from what the first ones looked like when they were pushing through. They were also more of a purplish color, and this looks more yellow/green and is also shaped differently. I am not sure what is going on there, but we will see what it turns into. Hopefully it is part of the plant and not some random tag-along.

On a side note, there is no hint of activity in the purple shamrock pot that is on the front porch. I am not sure if being outside, the drop in temperature at night would slow down any growth, or if maybe it doesn’t like the afternoon sun on the front porch. I will wait and see if anything happens.

    • Hi Joe,

      I love this plant! I love the beautiful little flowers, and the color of the foliage is great! I have noticed that the leaves don’t seem to appreciate getting wet though. I’ll have to put up some updated pictures. So behind.
