Lipstick plants are a very easy and beautiful option that isn't found in most stores!
This is a trailing plant that loves to sprawl and drape over its surroundings. It typically flowers in the late summer or early fall, but can bloom year round!
Propagate easily by placing a cutting into water and allow to root.
Lighting: Bright indirect, no direct. Plenty of filtered light is important for blooming!
Water: Lipstick plants would prefer to be kept on the dry side - they can tolerate drought, but they can't tolerate over-watering. Always check the soil before watering to make sure it's mostly dried out, and if you're ever in doubt, it's better to wait a little bit than panic and dump water in the soil. Mist daily, or keep in humidity.
Soil/Potting: Plant in a rich, organic soil in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like ceramic. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits.
Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recomended for steady growth and to promote flowering.
Temperature: Room temp, protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter. Do not allow to get hot. Keep away from vents.
Toxicity: Safe for humans and pets.
