Aeschynanthus

Origin

The Aeschynanthus comes from the Gesneriaceae family. In Dutch, the Aeschynanthus is also called Schaamrood or lipstick plant. Originally the Aeschynanthus grows in the forests in Asia where it is moist. The Aeschynanthus is an Epiphyte, which means that it grows on other trees and plants, but it gets its nutrition from the air. Because the Aeschynanthus is used to a warm and humid environment, it does well in the bathroom or kitchen.

Watering

The Aeschynanthus likes to be in a slightly moist potting soil in the spring and summer. Therefore, give the plant a small amount of water regularly. You can also spray the Aeschynanthus regularly in spring and summer. In autumn and winter, the Aeschynanthus has its rest period, it is less thirsty and does not need to be watered as often.
