The goldfish plant is a tropical plant native to the rainforests of Central and South America. It is named for its unique flowers, which resemble tiny goldfish swimming in a pond.



Goldfish plants make excellent houseplants and grow well in hanging baskets and planters. They thrive in warm temperatures, drier soil, moderate to high humidity, indirect bright light and will grow up to 2 to 3 ft indoors. 


Goldfish Plant needs bright, indirect light from a windowsill.  Direct sun will burn the leaves while too little light prevents the plant from flowering. 


These plants love humidity, so make sure that their soil never fully dries out and if you have them in a hanger, mist them on a pretty regular basis. (And mist them with room temperature water, not cold, which can damage the leaves). If you want a really happy Goldfish plant, you might want to consider the bathroom, where they’ll thrive on the steam from the shower!
