RED SHAMROCK


I’m terrible with plants. I’ve always wanted one of these red shamrocks. I really hope I can keep them alive!

    I have always had these “red shamrocks” as well. I have some that have lived for 9 years now!! And I should add, I too am terrible with plants. You should be just fine. They like light!

    I love this plant! I had mine for some years, but I think it is finally starting to die off. I really want another one now. Yours looks so healthy! They are pretty easy to take care of! And, so pretty!

    My Mom has one and oh how I love their slender sloping stems, and how they close up their leaves in the evening.

    My boyfriends mom has one of these in the guestroom I stay in when I go to their house! The thing is like taking over the nightstand. I’ve always wondered what it is but I’m too proud to ask her cause she thinks I’m mildly domestic (I tricked her). You’ve answered my question! It’s a miracle.

    If you don’t know, these grow from small tubers – about the size of
    my little finger – and they grow longer each year. If the plant seems to die in winter, in spring, dump the soil in the pot onto a newspaper – you’ll see the tubers. Put fresh soil in several pots – you can break the tubers in smaller pieces – and you can plant in the pots with fresh soil – a piece of tuber can be as small as a qtr. inch – and placed in new pot several inches apart and not too deep.They’ll produce better when the temperature is not too cold. I replanted mid-winter last year – took forever for them to come up. This should be done at least every 3 years – tubers get too large, they’ll choke the growth. Good luck!!!
