Purple Shamrocks can be easily propagated through division. It is best done when the plant is dormant in the cooler months to avoid shock.
Take care when handling all parts of the plants as it is considered to be poisonous. Ensure that it is kept away from pets and young children.
Water less frequently in winter, when the plant is growing in low light, or has become dormant. Once the weather or conditions pick up, the shamrocks are known to shoot back after a short recharge.
Do not over water them as they don’t like wet feet.
Purple Shamrocks will grow very happily in smaller pots. Try not to plant them out in oversized or large pots as they do not have a huge root zone.
If your shamrock is a bit dull, provide it with some morning light to help intensify the colour of the leaves.
