Description

The GoldFish plant is from tropical South America and likes a shaded spot in a tropical garden. If you want to admire this cutie from your lounge he can also handle a bright spot indoors as long as it is nice and humid.

He is easygoing and has fleshy, glossy green leaves that trail along nicely making him perfect for a hanging basket where his adorable flowers and new red foliage will make a colourful statement. 

Our plants are beautifully grown and have well-developed roots. They are hardened, can be planted directly into the planters, and are excellent performing Indoor plants - it’s our plant promise guarantee!
