Q.Shamrock Plant as a house plant

Zone 58577 | Jan Hanson added on November 28, 2017 | Answered

I have my Shamrock plant in my office with mostly florescent lighting. My plant has really dwindled in the last month one or two shoots come up but die off when another shoot comes up. Could it be in its dormant stage right now or is there something else wrong? I read in the article they go dormant during the summer, but being it’s inside I figured it wouldn’t know when it is summer so going dormant now.

Even if it is an indoor plant, they will still require a dormancy. You can create this yourself by watering less, and exposing the plant to cooler temperatures and less light.
