Additional Information

History and Naming of Lipstick Plant:

Originally from Malaysia, Lipstick Plant is technically an epiphyte, living in the branches of trees without soil. These plants do not mind staying root bound, in fact they are more likely to flower when they're kept in small containers. Pruning after the Lipstick Plant flowers encourages the plant to stay compact and bushy, and the cuttings are the easiest way to propagate the plants. The flowers are relatively long lasting for houseplants, and take their time opening one by one. Aeschynanthus radicans is the Latin name for Lipstick Plant. Aeschynanthus comes from a combination of aischuno, to be ashamed, and anthos flower. Radicans means that the plant roots from its stems.
