The Aeschynanthus lipstick vine has pointy, waxy leaves and blooms with bright clusters of red blossoms. These flowers emerge from a maroon bud resembling a tube of lipstick from which the plant derives its common name. 

LIGHT: Place the vine in the right light exposure for the particular plant. Although growing requirements vary, most plants require at least four hours of sunlight per day. Most don't do well in bright, direct light, especially during the summer, and most don't perform at their best in total shade. Read the plant's tag or consult a professional at a greenhouse or nursery.


WATER: Lipstick flower vine is a moisture-loving plant and needs to be kept moist but not too soggy. Water whenever the soil feels dry on the surface, adding water to the soil until the excess trickles from the drainage holes at the base of the pot. If the pot sits in a saucer, tip out the excess water after watering so the pot isn't sitting in a puddle. Reduce watering by half in winter when the weather is cool and the light is dim.
