Grow Purple Shamrock with me!

Sharing is caring!

Embark on the journey to cultivate the mystical Oxalis Triangularis, or as it’s more commonly known, the Purple Shamrock has been a dream of mine for ages. Fueled by the holiday spirit and some Christmas cash burning a hole in my pocket, I took the plunge and ordered seeds/rhizomes from the mystical depths of Amazon (link here). Now, despite the ominous cloud of bad reviews looming overhead, let’s roll up our sleeves and dive into this green-thumbed adventure together!

The Planting begins…

I might be fashionably late to the planting party, given that is usually around mid-September. Better late than never, right? Picture this: little pinecone-like seeds eagerly awaiting their chance to burst forth into a world of sunshine and growth.

Next with careful precision, I planted these enigmatic seeds about an inch apart in the chosen pot, strategically positioning them. The pot found its home by a sun-drenched window next to a plant friend, basking in the glorious rays that will hopefully kickstart the Purple Shamrock fiesta. A generous dousing of water ensued.

Now, here’s the exciting part, in approximately six weeks, our patience and dedication should be rewarded with the first signs of life. So, buckle up, fellow adventurer, for an impending update.

A watering warning!

As I delved into the lore of the Purple Shamrock, a crucial piece of advice emerged. Too much water, it seems, can turn our resilient companions into dormant dreamers. For those intrepid souls joining me on this journey, exercise caution with the watering can. Opt for a delicate dance of light waterings weekly.

So, my green-thumbed comrades, let’s defy the naysayers and skeptics, and nurture our Purple Shamrocks into a symphony of botanical brilliance. Stay tuned for the next chapter in this leafy saga – Happy Planting! Questions? You can always contact me!
