aka Aeschynanthus Rasta

Height: 35cm
Nursery Pot:

Another quirky but easy-care houseplant, she's known as the twisted lipstick plant due to her beautiful red flowers, which resemble a tube of red lipstick. 

Light: Native to the tropical and humid rainforests or Jave, she'll be happiest with an hour or two of direct sunlight. 

Water: She has exceptional tolerance for neglect, which makes her great for new plant parents or forgetful ones! Her thick leaves will store water, so on average, aim to water her once her soil has almost dried out. Always check her soil with your finger before re-watering. If it's moist, hold off. 

She enjoys humidity so perfect for bright bathrooms and kitchens, or mist regularly. 

Height: She makes a great hanging plant as her distinctive curly leaves can trail up to 1m with the right TLC

Food: Feed her once a month during the spring and summer with organic plant food. 

PM tip: Don't be tempted to re-pot too soon, this girl likes to be snug. When it's time to re-pot, use fast draining and well-aerated cactus potting mix.

Another useful tip, when you re-pot your plants, you shouldn't feed them for 6-12 weeks as there will be fresh nutrients in the soil. 

Toxicity: She is a non-toxic, pet-friendly houseplant.
