The Nematanthus gets its common name of ‘Goldfish Plant’ because its flowers closely resemble the most commonly kept aquarium fish. Most of us can say that we had a goldfish at one point in our lives and now you can have many many more - in plant form!
Its trailing leaves are small, defined and waxy and spread downward as it matures, sometimes reaching three feet long if left untrimmed. The petals create a pouch with a small opening that can bloom prolifically in shades of red, orange and yellow.
