What other plant parents say
This one is my FAVORITE. I love how she perks up during daylight hours and looks like a whole family of butterflies circling my credenza. I wasn’t sure she was going to make it, as she was shipped to…
It might die upon repotting or propagation, but have no fear! Those bulbs will sprout again in no time! My favorite, easiest, and most successfully grown plant to date.
Nonstop sprouting blooms and has gotten bushier since I took her home. I don’t have good lighting at home but it’s doing very well.
It is so pretty but I never know if it is thriving or dying. It is a very confusing plant
How to care for Purple Shamrocks
Purple Shamrocks needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Purple Shamrocks may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Purple Shamrocks in your home 🏡.
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 Purple Shamrocks after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
