Love is in the air with this particular plant. The Triangularis Oxalis is commonly known as the ‘Love Plant’. Being highly photophilic, the plant opens and closes its leaves in response to light. To add on its burgundy foliage and heart shaped leaves, the charming plant truly resembles a little flutter of butterflies.

 

Originating from Brazil, this unique plant is easy to care for and extremely long lived. Though its beautiful purple leaves are the star of the show, look out for its small bright delicate flowers that come in either pink or white. You can expect this plant to grace your indoor space with robust colour and charm.

 

Here are some pointers on how to care for the Triangularis Oxalis!

 

  • Keep soil well drained
  • Put under direct or partial sunlight
  • Water weekly (Add enough water to keep soil moist!)
