Aeschynanthus ‘Red Star’


Aeschynanthus ‘Red Star’ is a tropical hanging houseplant is commonly known as the lipstick plant because of its deep crimson flower sticking up out of the burgundy bud. The ‘Red Star’ is best shown off in a high position, so its deep glossy all year-round green tendrils can drape down. This plant is an epiphyte, which means it grows on a host, i.e. tree or rock.  Instead of obtaining nutrients from the soil, it gets everything it needs to survive from the air.
