The other "goldfish" plant...We commonly see the Nemantanthus varieties labelled as the "goldfish." This plant boasts waxy deep green leaves with fat, bright orange blooms. On the other hand, the "columnea" is a tad more subtle. It displays velvety, light green foliage, and its flowers are usually a red/orange and more elongated than the former, at times, referred to by the moniker "dancing dolphin" plant. 

CARE:

  • Bright indirect light, esp to upkeep blooms-NO DIRECT SUN (leaves will burn)
  • Does well in warmth and moderate humidity 
  • Ensure to keep away from drafts and heater
  • Water when the first 1/3 of soil is dry
