Everything about: Lipstick Vine 'Twister' - C12

Lipstick Vine 'Twister' - Aeschynanthus 'Twister' (latin)
Pot diameter 12 cm - Indoor plant

Recommended temperature: 14 to 22°C.
Hygrometry: Humid to very humid atmosphere.
Site: Full sun.
Geographical origins: Tropical areas of India, China and Malaysia.
Adult sizing: Branches can get up to 60 cm.
Growth: Medium.


Properties and uses:
This stylish Aeschynanthus has curved leaves, which give it a highly original, 'curly look'. From June to September, it grows superb red flowers at the tip of its branches.


Looking after advice:

The Aeschynanthus thrives in humid surroundings
- So it is best not to wait too long in between watering, just the length of time needed for the compost to dry on its surface.
- It also likes spraying of its foliage or bathing.
- Place it in a light spot without exposing it to direct sun rays.
- Give it liquid fertiliser, two to four times each month from February to the beginning of blossom.

Re-potting:
- Only re-pot when the roots of your Aeschynanthus overrun the pot.
- Replace the entire compost with an acid one, rich in green matter.
- Heath-peat or peat are suitable, adding some draining elements.
- Do not tamp the soil down as the roots must be able to breathe.
