Columnea hirta 'Light Prince' (Goldfish Plant)


This product is sold out

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. 


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.


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.
