Perhaps the most beloved item at the Perkins Cove Pottery Shop, the Goldfish Plant (scientific name: Nematanthus nervosus) features glossy leaves and little orange flowers that look like goldfish.
Care instructions: The Goldfish Plant prefers to be tightly pot-bound and dry in between watering. A spot with bright light is great, but not where it will receive constant, direct sunlight. Best to leave in the 3" pot for a good while, only transplant to a slightly larger pot.
The succulents featured in these 3" pots are from Echeveria family. They are native to semi-desert regions of Central America and known for their rose-shaped appearance. They grow exquisite flowers.
About the grower: The greenhouse is a family run business. Gerald, the owner, has been involved with everything from flowers and foliage to plants since he and his family immigrated here from the Netherlands in the early 80’s. The company has transformed many times, as Gerald has always set out to find the most unique and innovative products available. Their passion and care for air plants and succulents gives them the ability to offer the highest quality plants. They are unique in that most of the plants they sell are coming from mother plants grown from seed.
Xerographica is often called the “king” of Tillandias. It can grow over 2 feet wide, and produces a jaw dropping multicolored spike. It is an easy to grow variety. Keys to keeping these plants happy are weekly misting, and bright light.
