Aeschynanthus

Aeschynanthus are commonly called "lipstick" plants. The blossoms of many of the varieties listed have the appearance of emerging or extending from a tube of lipstick, hence the name "lipstick" plant. Flower colors range from red, orange, and combinations of red, yellow and orange. May be grown in hanging baskets and placed outside in the summer in shaded areas. Indoors, grow in south or west windows for best results. Let soil become slightly dry between waterings. Use a light porous potting mix. Feed plants regularly, using a well balanced fertilizer, at ¼ tsp. per gallon of water, with every watering. Fertilizer may be increased to ½ to 1 full tsp. per gallon of water during spring, and summer, when plants are actively growing, depending upon the size of the plant. (Larger plants can handle more fertilizer.)
