Awhile back I did a review on The Houseplant Shop and after all this time, I’m officially addicted to indoor gardening! I went back and purchased plants throughout the year from them and reunited for another collaboration.
This time I received two unique plants that are sure to be showstoppers next spring!
Goldfish plants (Columnea gloriosa) come to us from the Central and South American tropics and derive their common name from the unusual shape of their flowers, which with some imagination, resemble fish. Under ideal conditions, the goldfish hanging plant blooms prolifically in a variety of reds, oranges and yellows. The leaves are generally 2 to 3 inches long, thick, waxy and dark green, although there are a few varieties with hairy leaves. The stems are vining and can reach 3 feet long.

Satin Pothos is just as easy to grow as its relative, golden pothos (Epipremnum aureum). Keep it warm and take care not to overwater this house plant. Cold drafts and soggy soil are two things it won’t tolerate.
You’ll see the best leaf color and variegation by keeping this pothos plant in bright, indirect light. You’ll also keep this plant healthy by boosting the humidity around it. In fact, its variegated foliage makes this plant a beautiful addition to a terrarium.
This striking tropical plant is fairly new to house plant nurseries, and is garnering a lot of attention.
My previous plants have exploded with growth this summer! I started propagating my Jade Peperomia because it had become so tall and lanky.
My Golden Dust Croton will definitely be getting a pot upgrade this spring! It is so lush and bushy! This is by far one of the easiest plants I have ever cared for. It was ALWAYS thirst during summer so impossible to over water and naturally as the air started to cool and I slowed down to weekly water it was still happy. By winter I think I’ll need to spread it out more but it’s a plant that tells you exactly when it’s thirsty by drooping dramatically!
Lastly, my Calathea, that started my obsession with Calatheas, is popping out new leaves despite my watering mishaps with it. All are very forgiving plants and helped me learn a lot about indoor gardening!
I’ve also ordered endless air plants, syngonium and various pothos. They have such a large variety of plants you can keep in the home.
The most important reason I’m so in love with House Plant Shop is because of the quality. I have never received a plant with bugs, they always come exactly as described, and the customer service is unbeatable. They usually have the “most wanted” plants of the season, at great prices.
