Lisa, a Lipstick Plant or Aeschynanthus Radicans Rasta, gets her name from the bright red blossoms that emerge from dark maroon buds that look like a tube of lipstick.


Native to Asia, Lisa is a vining plant with waxy leaves, who's partial to a bit of sun. If she isn't flowering for you, try moving her to a brighter spot! Interestingly, the large majority of lipstick plants are pollinated by sunbirds rather than bees.


Believe it or not, there are more than 150 different members of the Aeschynanthus family, most of which are epiphytes, meaning they grow in cracks and crevices on trees and rocks, rather than on the ground. 

Lisa, Lipstick Plant - Large

  • Lisa prefers medium to bright light.

    If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:

    • Minimal shadow = lower light
    • Half shadow = indirect light
    • Full shadow = direct sun

Plant care basics


Place your plants in a spot where they'll thrive & not just where they'll look good - you won't regret it!


Stick your finger 2 inches into your plants soil, and if it's dry give it a drink - if not, hold off on the water.


Plants get hungry too! In spring & summer feed your plants every 2-4 weeks! Back off during Autumn & Winter.
