Planting & Care
To avoid many of the problems with goldfish houseplants and other epiphytes, you must begin with the proper growing medium. The medium should be light and coarse and should not, in spite of the plant’s needs, hold water for extended periods of time.

Sunlight: Part shade to full shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 65-75°F

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Most problems with goldfish plant such as leggy growth, leaf drop, and lack of flowering are directly related to everyday goldfish plant care.
  • Oddly, for a plant that needs such a moist environment, the biggest culprit is overwatering.
  • Too much room can also cause problems.


Special Feature:
Almost always used in hanging baskets to effectively display their flowers.
Use
Ornamental use:
  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.


Note:
Problems include botrytis mold, fungal leaf spots, mosaic virus, aphids, spider mites, and whiteflies. Leaves drop due to drafts and low humidity. The leaves may also brown from a build up of calcium in the soil.
