Care instructions

LIGHT: Happiest in bright light. Can tolerate some direct sun in the mornings and evenings but avoid harsh midday sunlight.

WATERING: Water thoroughly then allow top 2” to dry out before watering again. Avoid waterlogging.

HUMIDITY: Easy-going. Occasional misting to clean the leaves is appreciated.

TEMPERATURE: Enjoys cool to warm temperatures of 10-22°C. Avoid draughts.

FEEDING: Liquid houseplant feed once every two months during spring and summer only.

GROWTH: Average growth rate. Can exceed 12” in height. Grows as wide as the pot will allow.

TOXICITY: Unsafe if eaten by pets or people.

OTHER: Oxalis may hibernate if conditions are poor (too cold, too dark, too dry). This means all the top growth will die off but plant will regrow once conditions improve.
