Description

The Lipstick Plant ‘Black Pagoda’ is a vining houseplant that is characterized by its foliage streaked with electric-looking veining and orange blooming flowers. It gets its common name of 'Lipstick Plant' from its flowering buds that peek out of dark-colored tubes, resembling miniature tubes of lipstick. This plant thrives in medium to bright indirect light, but will survive under lower light conditions. The more light it gets, the more it will bloom, and the ‘Black Pagoda’ looks particularly striking in a hanging basket at eye level due to the way the vines and flowers grow.
