Nematanthus fortaleza

Description

Nematanthus fortaleza also goes by the name of Goldfish Plant because of its adorable looking bright orange flowers that look like a goldfish about to blow a bubble. This super cute tropical, trailing plant has fleshy, glossy green leaves with new growth appearing red. 

Loves bright dappled light and can handle full shade but she can also grow well in cooler climates as found all up and down the Australian east coast.

These plants go well indoors providing the humidity is kept up to them - they also are well suited to be grown outdoors in locations mid to northeastern coast of Australia.

She enjoys a soil, rich and moist, but well-drained with plenty of added organic matter like compost.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: Great for hanging baskets inside or outside. Ground cover, patio, pots and tubs and under trees.
  • I grow to: 20cm high, 1.2m wide 

  • Where to place me: I like a bright, dappled light and can handle full shade. Just make sure I am not in the direct sun otherwise my leaves might burn. 

  • Watering conditions: I like good water but make sure my soil is not soaking otherwise my roots might rot. In winter I won't need as much water. 
  • Soil Conditions: I like well-draining soil 

  • My features:  I actually do better if I am slightly pot bound so you don't need to worry about repotting me often please.


Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door
