Aeschynanthus 'Lipstick Plant'

$ 34.00
Size: 6" Pot
Embodying its glamorous name, the Aeschynanthus 'Lipstick Plant' is an eye-catching houseplant native to the humid rainforests of Asia. This striking plant is adorned with glossy, dark green leaves and vibrant, tubular flowers that resemble a tube of lipstick – thus earning its distinctive name. The flowers burst forth in flamboyant shades of red, orange, and yellow, adding a bold splash of color to any interior setting. When fully grown, the Lipstick Plant can reach up to 2 feet in height and width, but its true charm lies in its sprawling growth habit, which can extend its impact even further. Perfectly suited to hanging baskets or high shelves, the cascading vines of the Lipstick Plant will tumble down, creating a beautiful “waterfall” effect. It is a fairly fast grower, given the right conditions of bright, indirect light and high humidity, mirroring its tropical rainforest origins. You might also observe a unique growth habit where the plant's vines coil around themselves, creating an intriguing “twisted” effect that further enhances its appeal. Despite its exotic appearance, the Lipstick Plant is not a high-maintenance houseplant. It thrives in well-draining soil and prefers to be watered thoroughly, but only once the top layer of soil has dried out. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's crucial to strike the right balance. Adding to the drama and beauty of its foliage and growth habit, the Lipstick Plant puts on a dazzling display of blooms, usually in the summer months. Its bright, tubular flowers unfurl from dark, almost-black buds, creating a stunning contrast against the lush green foliage. The flowers are long-lasting, staying vibrant for several weeks, and are a magnet for pollinators if you choose to place the plant outdoors during warmer months. Overall, the Aeschynanthus 'Lipstick Plant' is a unique and captivating houseplant that will add a tropical touch and vibrant color to your home or office. Whether displayed in a hanging basket or placed on a high shelf, this plant is sure to draw the eye and start conversations. With its glossy leaves, vibrant blooms, and intriguing growth habit, the Lipstick Plant truly lives up to its name and is a must-have for any houseplant enthusiast.

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
