What type of plant is this? Goldfish Plant
I received this plant as a present and have no idea what it is. This is my first houseplant and I am not sure where to put it without knowing what it is?
Your plant is a Goldfish Plant. Goldfish plants have hundreds of small, thick, shiny, dark green leaves and colorful flowers that resemble tiny goldfish.
This is a mature goldfish plant covered in flowers.
Here are some care tips for a Goldfish Plant>
Water: Allow the top 25%-30% of the soil in a Goldfish Plant to dry out before watering. Green leaves fall off a Goldfish Plant when the plant is too wet or too dry.
Plant Food: Fertilize a Goldfish plant every two weeks in the spring and summer when it is actively growing with a basic plant food at 1/2 the recommended strength. Feed a Goldfish Plant monthly in the fall and winter.
