Lipstick vine has pointy, waxy leaves and blooms with bright clusters of flowers. Vivid red blossoms emerge from a dark maroon bud reminiscent of a tube of lipstick. The plant needs bright light for a portion of the day, but not all day long.
Air and soil temperatures must be a minimum of 70 to 80 F. for proper blooming. Water the plants moderately and be sure not to soak the soil.
