Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Oxalis Triangularis after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I love my shamrocks! They are a bulb plant and bloom extremely easy. I have new sprouts about every week, a flower once month. We are now getting into the colder months and it still is not dormant! If you decided to give them a "rain bath" the leaves can brown/break, so be careful!
I love waking up and going to see my butterflies. They are so happy, fully open and ready for the day. It’s just an overall fun plant. The butterflies range in color for me. Some are a deep purple, others are a dark lime green and some are even a mixture of both but faded as if bleached. The flowers are absolutely adorable and also open and close at night.
