Description:

Native to parts of Southeast Asia, the unusual Aeschynanthus longicaulis plant shows off its dark green mottled foliage, decorated in a pattern that reminds many of tiger stripes. Leaf tops are dark green with lighter green mottling, and undersides have a base color of maroon with creamy patterns to add interest. While this plant can tolerate lower light, bright indirect light helps promote the growth of flowers, especially from late winter to spring. Aeschynanthus longicaulis is sometimes called Tiger Lipstick, owing to these flowers that are shaped like fluted tubes. Nevertheless, the foliage is what sparks interest all year long. Purple stems trail from this plant, causing it to look great in baskets or pots placed on high shelves. Epiphytic, often growing on bark or other plants in the wild, Aeschynanthus longicaulis likes good drainage. This uncommon plant is easy to grow, but do not let it get too dry. It likes to be somewhat moist and appreciates humidity.
