The tropical goldfish plant (Columnea Gloriosa) gets its moniker thanks to its tubular red and orange petals, which emerge in the spring and summer, and resemble goldfish when in bloom.
It takes six to 10 weeks for a goldfish plant to flower.
How to care for your new Goldfish plant:
SUNLIGHT: Goldfish plants need bright, indirect light. Place the place near a window that does not receive full sun exposure.
WATER: Consistent watering maintains moist but well-drained soil throughout the goldfish plant's growing season (spring through fall). Use your hand to feel the top few inches of soil. Water again once the top few inches are dry.
HUMIDITY/TEMPERATURE: The goldfish plant needs humidity to survive, similar to its native tropical environment. Use a spray bottle to mist the plant, increasing the moisture when growing this plant indoors. Additionally, maintain temperatures around 65°F to 80°F throughout the year. Avoid fluctuating temperatures, cold snaps, extreme winds, and indoor air vents.
