Answer: Your goldfish plant (Columnea gloriosa) has some pretty exacting requirements and if they're not met, the plant will refuse to bloom. Here are some basic guidelines:
Mist frequently to maintain a moist atmosphere around the foliage. Keep the potting soil on the dry side during the winter and maintain the nighttime temperature at 55F-65F. In the spring, provide average household temperatures, bright light (with no direct sunlight), and keep the soil moist at all times.
Once you've corrected the growing conditions, your goldfish plant should reward you with lots of flowers!
