Description

Aeschynanthus Radicans, more commonly known as lipstick plant, is a popular and striking evergreen tropical houseplant.

It gets its name from the vibrant red and tubular flowers that appear above a burgundy bud. These flowers grow in clusters and, along with the waxy, glossy, green foliage, have a cascading, vine-like habit. This makes them an ideal choice for use in hanging baskets or tall containers.

As an epiphytic species, these plants are native to the tropical regions of Southeast Asia. Here you can find them growing on tree branches and in crevices in rocks.

Provided they get enough warmth, humidity and filtered sunlight, you can enjoy a profuse bloom for much of the year. In general, however, lipstick plants flower most profusely in summer and autumn.

→ Each plant is unique; size and shape fluctuate seasonally, so all measurements are shown as a range.
→ Supplied in a ...cm diameter cultivation pot.
→ Plants under 50cm are shipped together with pot.
→ If you buy a large plant with a planter, the planter will be shipped separately.

Care

☀ Thrives in bright indirect to medium indirect light.
