Aeschynanthus longicaulis 'Black pagoda'
Common name: Lipstick Plant, Lipstick Vine
Lipstick plants get their name from bright blossoms that pop out of a tubular bud reminiscent of a lipstick tube. These plants originate from Southeast Asia and love a tropical environment. Their stems grow long and trail, and they are beautifully suited for hanging planters. The black pagoda variety is covered in bright veins that contrast dramatically with a purplish underleaf.
Light: Medium (if it's not blooming, try moving it into a brighter spot!)
Ease: Easy Breezy
Pet friendly: Yes
Care: Lipstick plants enjoy being pruned after the blooming season. You can cut the leaves back to about 6 inches in length. If you want to repot your lipstick, do so in the spring or summer.
