Little Goldfish


Little Goldfish (Nematanthus gregarius)

I'm so pleased that not only did my goldfish plant bloom for me, but all summer long! Still going, though the flowers have slowed down from the spring flush.

Thanks jacque. :-)
Greensis, this plant is somewhat epiphytic, needing humidity, and needs good light like some succulents. Peat and soil 50/50 has given me this flush, as well as a good high pressure sodium lamp! I have read all sorts of trouble on blooming it, and as this is its sixth year at my house, it took me some time to get these as well.

I really love this one Janey. I've been babying it for so long! I got it as six little cutings from the university greenouse. Came a long way.

I have one of these I just brought indoors since the temperature is dropping now. I think yours looks more pampered than mine though!

I've just watered and repotted. Changing the soil to a 50/50 mix seemed to make all the difference. The peat has more rich nutrients and holds moisture better. Good moisture and plenty of indirect light seems to do the trick.

Think I'll repot mine while I'm doing the geraniums today.
