Hi Everyone
Please could you tell me if Oxalis Burgundy Shamrock can be grown as a houseplant? Also - if you plant them in a pot, how many corms do you put in a pot and how far apart?

On plant Oxalis



Container plant yes, houseplant no.

Thanks MG - I'm surprised though, as one of the related questions on the right says Spritx grows them as a houseplant. I will PM her and see what happened when she tried.

My sister has had one in a pot indoors out of direct sun for literally years. She treats it with quite a bit of neglect and it seems to thrive!

What did Spritz say?

Hi MG - Spritz said it should be fine as a houseplant and that she planted 10 corms in a 10 litre pot - so problem sorted I think! Such a great site, thanks for all your help.
