This species of aeschynanthus has fantastic purple colouration on the underside of its leaves. It's great as a hanging plant and likes humidity so would do well in a bathroom with enough indirect bright light. Can also tolerate some direct light, so East or West facing windows would be ideal.
Please note, the planter is not included in the price.
Water regularly during warmer months but allow the soil to dry out between each watering and make sure the roots are never sitting in water for a prolonged period. Water less frequently during colder months.
Requires plenty of indirect light but may suffer if it gets too much direct sunlight. A lack of light can lead to leggy stems/ low growth rate / loss of leaves.
Avoid placing the planter next to radiators or draughty windows
Carefully wipe the leaves from time-to-time to remove any dust
Prune out any brown leaves or stems by cutting as close to the next stem or the base of the plant as possible
Use some fertiliser during warmer months i.e. April to September (little and often is best for consistent growth)
