Lipstick plants are a beautiful flowering indoor plant prized for its shiny foliage and interesting flowers. It gets its name because the flower buds peek out of dark-colored tubes, looking like a miniature tube of lipstick. This tropical houseplant puts on a lovely display in front of a bright window and is an excellent choice for adding a splash of colour to brightly lit kitchens, bathrooms, and dining rooms.
How to care for your Lipstick plant -
Water: Water lipstick plant enough to keep the soil moist, but not wet or saturated for extended periods. Don't let lipstick plant wilt, but also take care not to over-water it. If this houseplant stays too wet, it will suffer from root rot.
Light: Grow lipstick plant in a medium to bright spot. The more light it gets, the better lipstick plant will bloom. If you have a lipstick plant that won't produce flowers, try moving it to a brighter spot.
Humidity: Allow normal humidity levels.
Temperature: Needs average to warm conditions 16-25°C but will be OK down to 10°C for short periods.
