4" Nematanthus Goldfish 'Marlene'


We have run out of stock for this item.

This goldfish named Marlene is a lovely tropical beauty from the tropical beauty of the rainforests. A pretty hybrid, her ancestors enjoyed the wild jungles of Brazil. Glossy, fat, bright to dark green, paired leaves fill their pot and trail nicely on succulent-like stems, arching gracefully as they grow. A deep red slash decorates the underside of each leaf just to add some drama. The real show is when Marlene blooms. Bright, jolly, tubby little goldfish in the brightest of oranges with the cutest pouty lips swim throughout her green leaves, like a busy pond. Similar in culture to Lipstick plants, bright indirect light and misting will keep those goldfish flowers coming and the leaves glossy and green.
