BRIEF DESCRIPTION

Hypocyrta glabra is a flowering plant native to Brazil. In its native habitat, the plant is an epiphyte. The name Goldfish plant comes from the unusual shape of their flowers which resemble the shape of a fish. They are generally grown as hanging plants.

BASIC CARE

Goldfish plant requires a little care but it is equally rewarding and long living. The more care you put in, the better blooms the plant will give.

LIGHTING

Goldfish plant grows best in abundance of indirect sunlight. You can even grow it indoors in an eastern-facing window or with artificial light too. 12 to 13 hours of artificial light is sufficient. Direct sunlight can dry out and scorch the plant.

FLOWERING

The leaves are thick, waxy and dark green in color. The plant has long, tubular orange colored flowers that look like leaping fish. Flowering occurs from late spring to early fall.

WATERING

Hypocyrta Glabra likes a fairly moist soil so water the plant regularly when growing in a container. The plant also likes humidity so mist the plant. You can also use humidity trays. Make sure to never over-water the plant as that can cause root-rot and other fungal problems. A good tip is to let the top soil dry before watering again.

SOIL

Use a coarse, light, well-draining soil. Don't use heavy clayey soils. You can add organic content to make the soil richer. Also, add a layer of mulch to retain moisture and maintain even temperatures.

SIZE

The plant grows about 2 to 3 feet. Prune the plant to maintain size and promote better growth.

FERTILIZERS

Use a liquid fertilizer rich in phosphorus mid flowering season to promote better blooms. Water the plant before fertilizing to prevent fertilizer burn.

PESTS

Aphids, spider mites and scale are few of the most common problems of the plant. Regularly inspect the plant for signs of these pests and treat immediately with appropriate pesticides.

BENEFITS

You can easily grow the plant in the garden or indoors in a container near the window or even in hanging baskets as it is popularly grown. It is mainly used as an ornamental or specimen plant. It creates the perfect focal point for any room.
