The Q&A Archives: Shamrock Plant Basics

Question: I have a shamrock plant and have no idea how to care for it and was wondering if you could give me some info on it? Donna Tully Aurora, IL

Answer: I have shamrocks, too, and find them pretty care-free so long as they have plenty of diffuse light (rather than direct south light). They prefer a well-drained potting soil kept evenly moist. Feed them lightly year round to keep them blooming. If they start to get potbound, divide the roots and pot them up.
