Hi,

I brought this plant home in March and know practically nothing about it- before that it had been grown by my Mother and then neglected for couple of months.
I only know it has been grown indoor but even though during winter time it was always 'dead'. Or maybe it just didn't get enough attention and looked dead. Anyway, when I brought it home there was only one leaf and now it has flowers...
I would love to know what that is and how I should care for the plant.
Thank you.

It seams it's Oxalis triangularis (Purple shamrock).
Great. Thank you again!
