Has anyone experienced a complete change of their Oxalis plant? Mine started out as a round green leaves and dilapidated stems, to now has sprouted triangular leaves with stems that stand straight up. As if the leaves changing shape weren't enough the new ones are green on top and purple maroonish on the underside. Seems to be doing really great, just very interesting and wondering if anyone else is as flabbergasted as I am.

Welcome!

You are now seeing what your plant should look like with proper care. BTW, its Oxalis triangularis.
