If you have a lipstick plant that won’t produce flowers, try moving it to a brighter spot. Water lipstick plant enough to keep the soil moist, but not wet or saturated for extended periods.
- Flowers will develop in the summer and will last up to a few weeks. Be sure to avoid persistent droughts whilst the plant is in the blooming process. In spring, repot every three years with ‘Houseplant’ compost.
- Propagate lipstick plants via cuttings…
Remove the lower leaves, cut the cutting (10 to 15 cm) diagonally below a leaf node and place up to three lipstick plant cuttings at least 5 cm deep in the same pot. Water the substrate well and then covers the pot with a plastic bag to ensure constant high humidity.
A lot of time goes by before roots develop at the cuttings of Lipstick. It takes about two months before roots have actually developed on the cutting.
- Lipstick plant care begins with airy soil and proper fertilization. A 3-2-1 NPK ratio liquid fertilizer gives a good result as long as you keep the soil moist. Be sure that you add a small amount of vitamins to the potting soil as part of the fertilization program.
