Sun: Indirect

Give your Columnea Hirta 'Goldfish' bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the delicate leaves.

Light: Medium - Bright

Provide consistent, moderate to bright indirect light for optimal growth. If the plant isn't flowering well, it might need more light.

Water: Keep evenly moist

Water your Columnea Hirta 'Goldfish' thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

Maintain moderate to high humidity levels, especially if you live in a dry climate. You can achieve this by misting the plant regularly or placing it on a pebble tray filled with water.

Pet Friendly: Yes

Columnea Hirta 'Goldfish' is generally safe for pets, but it's always a good idea to keep an eye on your furry friends around any new plant to ensure they don't chew on it.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
