  • Botanical Name: Nematanthus

  • Common Names: Brazilian firecracker, goldfish plant, gubby houseplant.

  • Description:  The Nematanthus has small waxy leaves with a distinctive curl at the tips of each leaf. This houseplant will grow in a trailing, vine-like fashion and is a great choice for filling up empty space in a room.



  • Light: Nematanthus plants can be grown in full sun or partial shade when planted or summered outside. When grown inside as a houseplant, the Nematanthus plant prefers full sun from south or west-facing windows.
  • Pet FriendlyYes
  • Water: During periods of active growth, typically from spring until fall, the Nematanthus plant prefers evenly moist soil. However, during the winter, when the plant is dormant, it requires little water to survive. Watering once or twice a month may be all your plant needs during the winter months, but always use your plants health as a guide; wilted or shriveled leaves indicate your plant needs more water.
  • Humidity: Medium
  • TemperatureIn cooler climates, the houseplant should be moved inside when temperatures drop below 50° F at night to allow the plant to adjust to indoor temperatures. It can be overwintered as a houseplant and returned to the outside when weather warms in the spring.
