    Quick Care Guide

    Care Difficulty: This plant has moderate care needs.

    Light requirements: Aeschynanthus ‘Mona Lisa’ prefers bright but indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight can cause the leaves to burn.

    Watering: Allow the soil to dry out a little between waterings. In winter, reduce watering to avoid root rot. This plant can withstand some drought conditions but not for long.

    Humidity: Native to tropical rainforests, Lipstick plants prefer a humid environment. Places such as the bathrooms or kitchens will have higher humidity or make sure to frequently mist. A lack of humidity can cause the flowers to fail.

    Toxicity: Non-Toxic to humans and pets

    Feeding: Enjoys a feed in spring and summer, and not in winter.
