Aeschynanthus radicans 'Crispa' - Curly Lipstick Plant
Aeschynanthus radicans 'Crispa' is often called Twisted Lipstick Plant. The "curly" part of the nickname refers to the beautiful, twisted leaves, and the "lipstick" part refers to the plant's unique flowers. This vining gesneriad has red, elongated blooms that emerge from a dark base, resembling lipstick in its applicator.
We love that this specific cultivar vines in all directions! It grows up, it hangs down, and sometimes there's a mix of growth styles to make a super full hanging basket or shelf specimen.
• Light: Perfect for medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry to the touch
• Considerations: Use a well-draining soil, and select a planter with drainage. Pet friendly!
