How to care for your Columnea

Your goldfish plant will do best in a bright indirect light location to encourage maximum flowering. It can grow leggy and lose blooms in lower light.
Water your goldfish plant when the soil volume is 50% dry. Always water thoroughly and evenly until water flows out of the drainage hole. Be sure to discard excess water in the saucer.
Your goldfish plant will do well in a humid environment. Add a pebble tray, group it with other plants, or place a humidifier nearby.
Your goldfish plant will do best in temperatures between 65-85°F.
For best results, use a liquid houseplant fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength once a month during the spring and summer. Never apply fertilizer to dry soil; always make sure the soil is damp before feeding your plant.
This plant is non-toxic to pets.
Prune back your plant often to encourage new blooms!
