GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Nematanthus is a genus of flowering plants in the family Gesneriaceae.
  • All of its species are endemic to Brazil.
  • Compared to other gesneriads, Nematanthus has leaves that are small, succulent, and hard-surfaced.
  • Goldfish plants have hundreds of small, thick, shiny, dark green leaves and colorful flowers that resemble tiny goldfish.
  • The flowers may be red, orange, or yellow.
  • Goldfish plants are easy to care for, drought-resistant, and with proper care bloom on and off all year.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Plant it in a rich, fertile, well-draining soil that retains moisture.
  • A commercial potting soil specially mixed for African violets works well for the goldfish plant.
  • It will even grow in a soilless potting mix, especially when grown as an indoor potted plant.
  • Grow peace lilies in well-drained potting soil.
  • Keep the soil moist but not soggy.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Feed them with a high-phosphorous liquid fertilizer, such as 10-30-10, diluted to half the recommended strength from the spring through the fall.
  • Allow it to dry out almost completely in the winter while they prepare to bloom and stop feeding the plants.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT 

  • They survive in low light but thrive in bright filtered light.
  • Keep peace lilies out of the direct sun so they don't sunburn. 

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Plant it in potting soil that contains peat moss.
  • In the spring, summer and fall, allow the soil to dry down to a depth of 2 inches between waterings.
  • Add water until it seeps out of the hole in the bottom of the pot.
