Lipstick Plant Care

Caring for your Lipstick Plant is an enjoyable journey that will reward you with vibrant blooms. Keep your plant in a warm, well-lit spot with temperatures ranging from 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure to keep it away from cold drafts and radiators. It's crucial to maintain clean, glossy leaves as they are the plant's powerhouse. Every few weeks, gently wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to remove any dust. This simple act not only keeps your plant looking its best but also allows it to absorb more light, leading to better growth. Remember to rotate the pot a ¼ turn once a month to promote balanced growth. This ensures that all parts of your plant get equal access to light, avoiding lopsided growth. Keep in mind that it's completely normal for younger Lipstick Plants to not bloom. They might need more time to mature. So, if your plant isn't blooming, it might just be too young. Keep taking care of it, and with time, it should reward you with stunning blooms.
