General Guidelines For Indoor Care:

Watering: It is advisable to water every 1-2 weeks. When you water, let the soil dry out about 1 inch down. If your plant is under brighter light then water more and less water to lower light. Too much water can rot the roots and kill your plant.

Humidity: Oxalis can handle average humidity room and requires no special care.

Fertilizing: Oxalis will enjoy a slow release 20-20-20 urea-based fertilizer or a monthly dose of liquid soluble food. Nitrogen will keep your foliage nice and lush.

Winter care: For colder zone areas, move the plant away from drafty windows to avoid any wilting or foliage damage.

Pruning: There is no need for deadheading as plants are self-cleaning but lightly pruning is advisable for better shape and size. When plant leaves start to turn brown, trim it the dying foliage from the plant base up to 1 inch.

Precaution: Keep the plant away from pets and children as it contains oxalic acid which is toxic. Many pets friendly plants are available in the market that is safe for pets and children.
