Nematanthus Black Goldfish House Plants have hundreds of small, thick, shiny, dark green leaves and colorful flowers that resemble tiny goldfish. The flowers on a Goldfish Plant may be red, orange, or yellow. I find Goldfish plants are easy to care for, drought-resistant, and with proper care bloom on and off all year.
Plant Care tips
- Lighting: This plant prefers medium indirect sunlight but can survive in low light situations.
- Temperature: Ideally, it should be in the temperature range of 65° F to 80° F at all times.
- Fertilizing: Feed your plant once or twice a year in the spring and summer with a basic houseplant food at half the recommended strength.
- Watering: Water the thoroughly and allow the top 75% of the soil to dry before watering again. Allow the soil to dry completely before watering if the plant is placed in low light. Water your plant less in the winter, when light levels are lower and growth has slowed.
