Gold Veined Oxalis

lavonn(6B)August 4, 2012

I have 3 pots of 'Aureo-reticulata'. They have all reverted back to solid green leaves. Does anyone have any help to getting those Gorgeous Gold Veins back? Thanks!

lavonn, I had this plant once but lost it. It kept its colour well because it was in a very bright greenhouse. I think light may be the significant factor.

Lavonn, what a pretty plant! I have zero experience with this particular oxyalis but I can share that these plants, as a whole, do great in a lot more sun than most people think.

I have always grown my purple oxalis, for example, in the full outdoor sunlight where they flower profusely and grow like crazy. In shadier conditions, they become lanky, lean, and not nearly so
floriforous. Don't you just love that word?

Good luck with your plant.
