The Goldfish Plant earned its name because of the masses of red-orange flowers that appear in the spring and summer and look a bit like leaping goldfish. Goldfish plants prefer bright light, but they don't like direct light. An eastern facing window is perfect. They can also successfully be grown under lights indoors, especially during the winter. During the summer, water generously and keep the soil continuously moist. In the winter, cut back on the water and allow the soil to become slightly drier.
