Lipstick Plant Hanger
Commonly called the lipstick plant because of the tubular scarlet flowers, which are held near the tips of the trailing stems by a darker sheath-like calyx. This eye-catching plant looks great cascading over the edges of the pot - even when not in bloom!
Although not difficult to grow they do have certain requirements. They are used to the humidity of tropical rainforests so mist the leaves regularly and keep them warm.
Don't let the temperature fall below 55°F or 13°C and keep away from draughts.
Water regularly with tepid kettle or rain water from spring to autumn, reducing in the winter to allow the plant a rest with slightly cooler temperatures.
Feed regularly through the growing season with a balanced houseplant fertiliser.
