Lipstick Plant 'Mona Lisa' Care Guide
Love bright light but not direct sunlight - it scorches its leaves.
Better to keep soil on the dry side but please never leave it totally dry. It can withstand a certain amount of drought but not overwatering, so please don't let it sit in water. It is also partial to regular misting.
Happy with normal room temperature but keep it away from hot or cold draughts please.
Feed it with regular liquid fertiliser during spring and summer every 2-3 weeks.
The best time to prune is after the flowering season. Keep stems from getting straggly to encourage thicker growth. Or, just pick off any dry leaves and let it grow wild!
The most common issue is leaf-drop - if more than the top inch of its soil is dry, please water it more. If you notice yellow leaves, it probably needs more light.
