oxalis not staying dormant
I have a few oxalis (shamrock) plants both purple and green. The purples are still going strong but the greens aren't staying dormant.
The one got bugs so I chopped off the leaves and stopped watering while the other looked super shabby so I stopped all watering. Both plants seemed to go dormant but about a week to three weeks later they started pushing up leaves. Finally I relented and let them out of the dark, cool spot and they seem to be coming back.
Should I try to keep them dormant for longer next time? I remember reading that they shpould be dormant for three to four months for the green variety.
what does everyone else do with theirs?
