Lipstick plant is a beautiful flowering indoor plant prized for its shiny foliage and interesting flowers. It gets its name because the flower buds peek out of dark-colored tubes, looking like a miniature tube of lipstick.
This tropical houseplant puts on a lovely display in front of a bright window and is an excellent choice for adding a splash of color to brightly lit kitchens, bathrooms, and dining rooms.
Light: Bright indirect light. The more light it gets, the better it will bloom. If you have a lipstick plant that won't produce flowers, try moving it to a brighter spot.
Water: Enough to keep the soil moist, but not wet or saturated for extended periods. If this houseplant stays too wet, it will suffer from root rot.
Fertilize: Monthly in spring and summer to help it produce lots of flowers. Use any general-purpose houseplant fertilizer.
Pets: Though the lipstick plant is not toxic to animals, if ingested, it could cause the animal to show signs of toxicity. Your pet can still experience nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, just like it would if it swallowed a toxic plant.
