These plants are used in rock gardens. The Oxalis deppei has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much. This plant in the summer assumes a pink colouring; it is large in size and can reach 30 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.
Temperatures Oxalis deppei
Let's grow the the Oxalis deppei in a luminous place, with direct sunlight. These plants don't like the cold weather during this time of year. If the minimum night-time temperatures are very harsh it is best to cover the the Oxalis deppei with non-woven fabric.Perennial plants mainly have a spring and summer development. During the coldest months of the year the aerial part can completely dry out, to come up the year after.
Irrigation Oxalis deppei
We suggest watering the the Oxalis deppei every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. These plants display a pretty long period of vegetational rest. During this time it isn't necessary to water the plants.
Adversity Oxalis deppei
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there aren’t flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
Substrate Oxalis deppei
Locate these plants in a soft and deep, very well drained soil.
