This is an unusual house plant which looks great in a hanging basket. Aeschynanthus is also known as the lipstick plant because of its red flowers. This particular variety has large leaves with big curls. It has been cultivated to form more interesting leaves than the naturally occuring rainforst ephiphyte, therefore this is a plant that doesn't appear in the wild. It is known as a lipstick plant because the red flowers emerge from a dark tube, looking rather like a stick of lipstick!
