The lipstick plant or vine of Aeschynanthus is (apart from the flowers) similar to the jewel, but without an increasing price. I admit that flowers aren't as amazing as hooya blossoms, but they bloom more reliably and seem like pretty fun little flowers to me. It looks like Eschynanthus, a hole that “bleeds” a white, sticky sap. Maybe it's a good idea to find out.
But the back of the leaves looks a bit like Eschynanthus. I recently started dedicating myself to lipstick plants. I love how they have such thick and succulent leaves. Some varieties climb, while others cluster and crawl.
Some even have curly leaves that remind me of the rarest hood-rope plants. They are very versatile and their beautiful vines can grow several feet long. I stopped at one of my local daycare centers to see if they had Hoyas. Unfortunately, there are no Hoyas, but I found this beautiful lipstick plant (black pagoda).
Otherwise, you can spray the leaves regularly as part of your plant care routine with lipstick, place a humidifier near them, or store them in a pebble tray. Even with its stunning tropical look, the lipstick plant is generally considered to be a relatively easy-to-care indoor plant. Caring for lipstick plants is easy, and there are many different beautiful varieties of lipstick plants to choose from. Pruning lipstick plants will encourage them to grow fuller, rather than having longer vines, but it's usually not a necessary part of their care.
Although it's easier to grow these plants from cuttings, it's still possible to germinate lipstick plants from seed. Lipstick plants grow well anywhere that receives bright filtered light and where a relatively high humidity level can be maintained, either through the use of a humidifier or regular fogging. Lipstick plants generally bloom in late summer and early fall, but can bloom any time of the year. When I bought my plants, they were the only 2 left in the store and I had to fight a lady for them, so I want to make sure I have a pair with the coming spring.
I have three different varieties, and they were all labeled a “lipstick plant”, so I've done a lot of research on what versions it probably has. They'll flower best when attached to the roots, so don't transplant your lipstick plant until absolutely necessary. A lipstick plant (Aeschynanthus radicans), also known as a common creeper, is an indoor plant with unusual flowers that is native to the tropical regions of Southeast Asia. As long as the plant receives sufficient heat, moisture and filtered sunlight, it will enjoy prolific flowering for much of the year.
If you see clusters of small areas similar to a cotton nest on your lipstick plant, I'm sorry to say that you're likely to have a mealybug infestation. You can also encourage thicker growth by pruning shorter stems so that the plant branches. Wrinkled or drooping leaves on a lipstick plant are signs of inadequate watering (either too much or too little). While there are more than 100 different species of lipstick plants, there are some you'll find most often at your local nursery.
