How to Get a Goldfish Plant to Bloom
How do I get my Goldfish Plant to get flowers and bloom more often?
Keep your Goldfish Plant in a small pot and in very
bright indirect light
Very few houseplants should be placed in direct sun. High light refers only to bright indirect light since direct sun often burns the leaves of indoor houseplants. An area that is too hot and dry encourages Spider Mites and causes blooms to quickly fade. A northern exposure really doesn't provide enough light for high light plants. These plants need to be placed directly in front of an east-facing window, within 1-3 feet of a west-facing window, and within 5 ft. of a south facing window. A high light area has over 300 ft. candles of light.
to encourage it to flower. Most blooms appear in spring and summer, but I’ve had Goldfish Plants that have bloomed all year! Allowing the soil to dry out more during the winter, helps it to bloom even more. You can read all of my care tips for a Goldfish Plant in the Popular Houseplant section of the website.
