It’s your lucky day, you’ve got one of the most rewarding houseplants to have around! They’re minimum fuss and will reward you all year long with playful leaves and cute blooms.


Light - Shamrocks can withstand a varying array of lighting conditions ranging from moderate to bright, direct sunlight. They can even be put outdoors in the summer! Come nighttime, once the sun goes down, watch as they fold up their leaves and go to sleep. Turn your plant periodically to promote upright growth.


Water - Shamrocks are quite hardy when it comes to watering. They can handle drought if you forget to water them, and if you end up accidentally being heavy handed with the watering can, they’ll forgive you. (Just don’t let it KEEP happening!) 


When leaves and bloom stems drop and perish, gently pull them to remove from the plant.


*Just like people, each plant is a unique living thing and may have varying needs, especially in their individual locations. These are basic guidelines that may have to be augmented slightly depending on the environment you place your plant in, as well as frequency and amount of water given.
