Day 56 of 2021 -  Sa isang maliit na recycled plastic iba't ibang halaman ang tumubo. Nature really can very well take care of itself. 💗

Oxalis triangularis, commonly called false shamrock, is a species of perennial plant in the family Oxalidaceae. 

Weekly watering should be light. Too much water will send the plant back into dormancy. Indoors, keep your oxalis triangularis in a sunny spot. You will find the deep purple foliage really brings out the vibrant green of other plants, and the color contrast makes your other houseplants seem to glow with health.

The leaves are eaten raw or cooked and have an acidic taste due to their oxalic acid content. Leaves and flowers can be used as a decoration for salads. When consuming larger amounts of leaves, the oxalic acid can cause discomfort. The rhizomes are eaten raw or cooked and have a sweet taste.
