Botanical: Columnea Gloriosa
Misc: Cousins to the African Violet and some have fuzzy leaves. Varieties have red or yellow flowers, and the 'Fire Light' variety has lovely variegated leaves.
How Much Water?
During the summer, water generously and keep the soil continuously moist. In the winter, cut back on the water and allow the soil to become slightly drier. This seems to encourage better blooming. Be aware that the soil should never dry completely out.
How Much Sun?
Prefer bright light, but don't like direct light. An eastern facing window is perfect. They can also successfully be grown under lights indoors, especially during the winter.
Goldfish plants are highly rewarding plants. Outdoors, they want to grow to 3 feet, but it's a good idea to pinch off the new stems and maintain the plant under
2 feet tall. This will encourage better blooming and bushiness. Older, larger stems will cascade down the side of the pot and form a really beautiful display when they flower, especially in hanging baskets.
Best Temp & Humidity?
65°F-85°F. They need mild to moderate humidity and can be misted daily with room temperature water. Cold water will damage the foliage. In particularly dry environments, a humidifier near the plant is helpful.
Your Goldfish is pet and kid safe, however it is a best practice to always keep houseplants out of reach of small children and your furry family. Have a question or concern with your Goldfish? Snap a pic and send with your question to firstname.lastname@example.org
