Oxalis Triangularis corms, when to dig them up

Titanium237January 15, 2012

I have an Oxalis Triangularis. It's winter here and the plant is in dormancy (Not growing, faded colour, looking sloppy). I know that you can get corms from the plant (This is how I started). I do not know when these corms are "ripe for the picking". When is the best time to dig them up? And how long can the corms last without drying up or rotting once I dig them up? You think it would last half a year?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Anytime after the bulbs go dormant is good. So yes, you can dig them up now. I'm not sure how long you can keep them after digging up. I would suppose it would be at least a few months if not a half year. Do keep them in a cool dark spot so they stay dormant.
