Nematanthus is an epiphytic shrub plant in nature. We often grow it in a hanging pot since its stems, initially erect, subsequently collapse, giving a beautiful drooping appearance. Its dark green leaves, stiff and succulent, create a smooth, shiny aesthetic. The orange flowers, with united petals, evoke a small fish. Direct exposure to sunlight stimulates intermittent abundant flowering. During the summer, favor morning sun if the plant is outdoors. Keep the soil slightly dry, avoiding complete drying out, especially during the flowering period.
