    Anybody have any experience with this plant?
    When I bought it, it was labelled Alloplectus Nummularia. After some search on the net, I found that is also referred to as Nematanthus (which I thought was Lipstick Plant).

    Anyways, so far, everything I've read says that they should be cared for like African Violets.

    Any special things I should pay attention to? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    DOH!

    Ok, i found some info on the "goldfish plant" In my book called houseplant basics.Its name is columnea It says to keep them in bright but not direct sunlight keep a summer temp of 70 degrees F and a winter of no lower than 61 degrees F. Keep soil moist at all times, and when the flower buds appear, use mild fertilizer weekly. Sorry it took so long, but anyways, happy holidays!!
