  • This Hanging Lipstick plant gets it to name for the shape and pattern that resembles a miniature tube of women's lipstick on its stems. This trailing plant great for bright windows and bright kitchens.

Although it is not highly toxic to pets, I should be kept out of reach from your animals as it may cause stomach upset.

Plant Care: 


  • Optimal: Bright, indirect light.
  • Avoid: Direct sunlight (can cause leaf burn), low light (can result in poor blooming).

  • Method: Water thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain out.
  • Note: Reduce watering in the winter months.

  • Pause: No fertilization needed in fall and winter.


  • When: After flowering or as needed.
  • How: Trim back leggy growth to encourage bushier growth and more blooms.
