Nematanthus Black Gold - I never really appreciated how the goldfish plant got it's name until I parted the jungle in the greenhouse with my camera lens and was greeted by this.

Great picture! My Goldfish is usually blooming this time of year but I cut it back severely this past Fall as it was getting rather ratty looking. It's come back nice and thick and filling out nicely.

I just wish my Columnea would bloom! I've had it going on 6 years now and it has yet to bloom! The variegated foliage is nice though

Anne, love your pics! Great, now realize I *need* a goldfish plant, thought I didn't until just now. I would love to see a flower on my Columnea too (or yours!) LOL, Calin, I'd settle for a donut tree!
