Caring for Your Lipstick Plant Aeschynanthus

  • Provide plenty of bright sunlight. Gentle direct sun is fine, too.
  • Water just before the potting mix dries throughout the pot. They are prone to root rot if watered too frequently.
  • Water a little less often in winter.
  • Fertilize lightly while the plant is actively growing.
  • Lipstick plants like humidity and will do well near a small diffuser/humidifier or near a window in a humid bathroom.
  • With enough light, this plant can bloom at any time of year featuring bright red blossoms.
  • Pet friendly!
