    So check this out I got some seeds for some clovers today and I don't know what to do to get these to grow. Anyone know anything about how to? I'm gonna go do a google search on them but I'd like to know from someone who grows them for themself. Maybe if I get a 4 leaf one I could get that dipped in gold or platinum.

    In my yard, clovers are pests. So, I say just sprinkle them on some potting soil and keep them moist.

    It depends on what Oxalis spp. it is. But generally, you sow them just covered in a well draining mix at 60-70F. They should germinate in 2-4 weeks.

    Here's a pic of Oxalis hedysaroides 'rubra," which is one of my favorite species. I sowed the seed as described above--it's growing in a bonsai soil mix and receiving sunlight with supplemental light from a 23W fluorescent bulb.



    Hope you have "luck of the Irish" with your clover seed.

    Do I plant them in the soil or on top?

    Just barely covered.
