Lipstick Plants (Aeschynanthus)

nova12(zone 2)May 27, 2008

I have a few lipstick plants, but my question is about 2 of them. Both of them came labelled as plain old generic lipstick plants. The flowers are similar, but the leaves are quite different. One of them has fairly small leaves, where the other has quite large leaves. I am just wondering if they are different species, or just different hybrids of the same species. I think both of them are either radicans/lobbianus, I get the idea they are one and the same.

Thanks for the help. Let me know if better pics are needed. I have more.

Beautiful Plants Nova, I've only had my two( Mona Lisa and a Black Pagoda) lipstick plants for about 4 months or so, so I am very new to them. The first one looks a lot like my "Mona Lisa" at least that's the label it came with. Your second one according to the link I posted below is a "Lipstick Rasta", looks like your picture.

I just posted a pic of my Mona lisa last week, it started getting the calyx? How long did it take from that stage till the flowers came out?

Thanks for the great pics, can't wait to see mine bloom!
