It’s time for a #stopkillinghouseplants post!
I am on a mission to get more peeps confident in keeping their houseplants alive for longer than the car ride home! #stopkillinghouseplants
Every Monday through the month of July I am sharing some of my favorite houseplants, why I love them, and my quick care tips!
It is no secret that my doggies and my houseplants have changed my life! Cleaner Air & Clearer + Calmer Mind = Happier Life
I hope my #stopkillinghouseplants series can help you end your stint as a 🔪🌿 houseplant serial killer. The first plant in my series is the: Oxalis Triangularis.
Oxalis triangularis (AKA false ☘️ shamrock)
Description: It is native to Brazil and known for its’ bold beautiful colors that range from deep violet to crimson red.
My Quick Care Tips: Oxalis requires multiple hours of direct sunlight each day. They’re perfect for a south facing sunroom or window that gets plenty of light! Like some houseplants, this one is isn’t good for pets to nibble on, so take caution when choosing a lower placement that may be easy for cats, dogs, or even kiddos to take a taste.
Why I Love It: I love how “alive” Oxalis’ are! They open and close as the sun rises and sets & they lean left to right as the sun moves throughout the day. I also love how often they blossom. I’ve gifted this plant to my mom and my cousin and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a unique houseplant to add to their home.
Where to Buy It: You may be able to find it at Home Depot or your local famer’s market, but if not you can order on Amazon. I have done this 3 times and they all have arrived healthy and happy!
