In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, I treated myself to an Oxalis Regnelli, a.k.a. a Lucky Shamrock Plant. These are the flowering shamrock-like plants available just about everywhere this time of year, including most grocery stores.
I’ve always considered my thumb green--well, at least chartreuse--but for some reason the luck for these supposedly easy to grow plants run out when they come into my care. Too much water? Not enough sun? I’d like to keep this sweet little thing alive longer than the average St. Patty’s Day hangover, so if anyone has experience with these plants, I could use some suggestions. (It will remain a houseplant.)
