Some people have all the luck and others are just plain unlucky. For the latter, their stars have been misaligning since the very second they came into this world. What’s worse is when these unfortunates make some raunchy decisions, begetting a tsunami of troubles always worse than the storms before. Where’s the secret escape door? Maybe what’s needed is a shield, and not an emergency exit. The shield being this Four-Leaf Clover Planting Kit, which could be an effective way to thwart bad luck elsewhere. Even if it’s just the placebo effect that’s being staged, what harm could be done by growing a few good-luck charms?
Celtic and Druidic legends have long attributed magical qualities to the four-leaf clover, which has become a universal symbol of good-luck. Tradition has it that finding one of these rare clovers by chance in the countryside is an omen of good things to come…
- Four-Leaf Clover Planting Kit.
- Includes a plastic pot, two bags with clover (“Oxalis rubral”) seeds, a small sponge to spread the seeds and a bag full of artificial culture medium.
- Size: Height 6.1 cm / 2.3 inches – Diameter 7 cm / 2.6 inches.
- Plant the seeds, leave the pot in a warm and sunny spot, water it regularly, and the seeds will germinate in about 18 days.
This is a great gift to give a friend who’s experiencing a bout of mishaps and shenanigans. It’s a way of saying, “Hey, things are pretty messed up right now but your luck’s about the change.” Don’t worry about the plant being the cheater’s way out. Think of it more as a hypothetical life preserver or raft floating out to someone who’s been stung by a group of poisonous jelly fish and bitten by sharks.
Even if you don’t believe in good luck/bad luck, it’s still fun to have a plant full of four-leaf clovers. When I was a kid, I found 54 four-leaf clovers in my yard in the same patch of grass, and haven’t been able to find even a few since then. I still look when I get the chance, because four-leaf clovers are rare and exciting. Plus, I’ve broken a few mirrors in my day.

This is pretty cool. Not for me though. I find four-leaf clovers all the time. People kinda get annoyed with how many I find. And I don’t even “look” for them. Also, I’ve found up to eight-leaf clovers.
So this is actually not a clover plant. Real clover is of the genus ‘Trifolium’, not Oxalis, aka woodsorrel. Cute idea, but 4 leaf clover are still tricky to find.
