Nematanthus are easy-to grow gesneriads with glossy foliage and bright, pouch-shaped flowers. They require high light to bloom, allow to dry slightly between watering and fertilize during the growing season. Hummingbirds find Nematanthus irresistible. It has pouched flowers that look like "candy corn". Same care as for violets, but will tolerate more light and less water. Highly recommended for the novice with a bright window, since they are very tolerant of neglect and are virtually indestructible. Nematanthus (some of which are still known by the old term Hypocyrta) have a characteristic pouched flower, usually but not always with a very small opening. They are generally epiphytic in nature, and like most tropical plants adapted to that habitat, require a fairly open planting medium that is allowed to dry somewhat between waterings.
