                 The image sent as O. lasiandra is true to name. it is a 
Mexican species with quite large flowers and that remains dry dormant in the 
wild. Provided thay have not been imported from this Hemisphere the plants 
should have no reason to hesitate growing well except perhaps if they are 
not receiving temperatures warm enough?. It seems to grow better when there 
is morning sun than in full all day sun.

Unrelated??? question. Yes, Tradescantias can become infected with virus 
from leafhopper, white flies and thrips, among others. And Oxalis can become 
virused too and this affects tremendously their natural vigour. Some people 
may regard the "pretty markings" deserving a cultivar name.

Kind regards
