Care Notes: Due to its potential size, terrarium use is not recommended. Aeschynanthus gracilis does very well in hanging baskets and as a potted plant. As an epiphyte, this plant likes soil on the drier end and should only be watered once the soil has dried out to avoid root rot. 

Shipping Notes: 

As a good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants may vary in color, size, and appearance.

The plant pictured is in a 2.5" pot

So bright and pretty

A popular plant YouTube personality got me wanting a “Lipstick plant” so I decided on this little beauty. I was surprised how well it handled shipping considering this plant seems so delicate. However, it’s happy, healthy and strong. I cannot wait for this one to bloom flowers!
