Thank you to all who responded to my oxalis query. Here’s what I decided to do.  All the summer dormant oxalis went into organza party favor bags with pot labels.  If you’ve never used them these bags (available Michael’s and the like) are real handy for protecting hybridizing attempts and catching seed.  The come in a variety of sizes.  I’ll pot them up when they start sprouting.  The summer growing and blooming oxalis I’ve potted.

Thanks again for your help.
