The 'Light Prince' or ‘Goldfish Plant’ is a beautiful variegated cultivar of the Columnea hirta species, native to Mexico. These plants are super hardy so they are a great choice if you're terrible with plants but still want something a bit special!

They produce lots of cool little orange flowers that resemble Goldfish throughout the winter months. 

Watering

Water a you would most indoor plants, when the top 2-3 cm of soil in the pot dries out. The period between watering should increase through the colder months as it will take longer for the top few cm of soil to dry out.

Position

An easy plant to care for, it likes bright indirect light but will tolerate more shade. Is happy in a humid spot but will also do well in less humid positions.

Managing growth

They are currently approximately 20x25cm however each trailing stem may get up to 1m long if left to grow unchecked. They are very easy to propagate from stem cuttings if you decide to prune your main plant! 

Greeting your Columnea Hirta when it arrives

These plants are shipped in a 1.5L nursery pot that is wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in during transport. They will fit any pot from our Classic Pot Range.

Our special eco packaging

No Plant Stress

Our plant packaging is designed by people know how to keep plants fresh and healthy in transit. Your plants will enjoy a comfortable trip directly from our greenhouse to your door in just a few of days. Your plant will not have to deal with the stress of being bare rooted for transport (how most plants are sent) and you won’t have to deal with the mess and fuss of potting up your new plant when you receive it.

Stability Support

The plastic pot will be wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in place, it will then be tied into a specially designed cardboard insert which will keep it stable and upright throughout its journey. The insert will be glued in place on top of your cardboard wrapped ceramic pot to hold it down and your plant up!

No Re-Potting

Your plant will come in its plastic pot which we make sure fits perfectly in whichever ceramic pot you choose. Our packaging has been designed to allow us to send your beautiful ceramic pot along with your plant, fully potted, yep in soil, together in the same box.
