Nematanthus

Nematanthus are commonly called "Goldfish" plants, having flowers that are pouch shaped. Blossoms come in shades of red-orange and yellow-orange. The varieties we offer are trailing plants and may be grown in hanging baskets. Grow in a south-west window, or under fluorescent lights, 14 hours daily for best growth and bloom. Let soil become slightly dry between waterings. Use a light porous potting mix. Feed plants regularly, using a well balanced fertilizer, at ¼ tsp. per gallon of water, with every watering. Fertilizer may be increased to ½ to 1 full tsp. per gallon of water during spring and summer, when plants are actively growing, depending upon the size of the plant. (Larger plants can handle more fertilizer.)
