Creeping oxalis can be removed from pots with a fork. The bulbous form of Oxalis is more difficult to remove. This is because the bulbs and tiny bulbils, usually lodged deeply between the roots of the potted plant, are difficult to access. If disturbed, they can break up and if left in the soil will produce new plants. Spraying oxalis with a herbicide is not a solution as the pot plant will also be affected. I suggest re-potting the plant into a fresh mix and in the process removing all of the oxalis bulbs.
