Lipstick Plant

$25

Lipstick Plant, or Aeschynanthus lipstick vine, is a stunning, trailing plant with waxy leaves and blooms with bright clusters of flowers, from which it gets its name. When the flowers bloom, they protrude from their dark-coloured tubes, as if you were opening a new tube of lipstick.

They should not be in a position to the see the sun directly, as it is too intense for them. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is fine and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.
They like bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They need to be watered when the top half of soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It may vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again.
They like a little bit of humidity, give them a mist every 2 - 3 days, making sure to only use lukewarm water, as cold water will burn the leaves.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
