generally blooms in the summer, so it should be planted during springtime, especially if planted in the garden
. As finger-leaf oxalis
requires proper drainage, choose locations in your garden in which the rainwater does not pool. Also, take into consideration the different sunlight requirements according to the finger-leaf oxalis
species that you plan to plant
in your garden. It is smart to plant
bulbs and not from the seed, as you are never sure if all seeds will germinate.
Loosen the soil and place the bulbs down about 4 cm and do not worry about on which side you place the bulb, as they will always grow upwards. Finger-leaf oxalis
looks stunning and grow well in groups, but be sure to make a bit of space between the bulbs (8 to 10 cm). If grown in pots, place up to 8 bulbs in a 15 cm container, up to 14 bulbs in an 20 cm pot and up to 20 bulbs in a 25 cm pot. Mix in some compost with the extracted soil, return the soil around the bulb and water generously at the end so the soil settles well. They should start sprouting after a couple of weeks.
