Aerangis luteoalba, Angraecum rhodostictum, Beige Aerangis

Aerangis luteoalba, Angraecum rhodostictum

Beige Aerangis
Family: Orchidaceae
Origin: Central Africa
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeEpiphyteModerate waterWhite/off-white flowers

A small, usually pendulous, monopodial epiphyte that is almost stemless. The short stem is hidden by the basal sheaths of closely set leaves. The roots are often flattened, with thin velamen, are green when wet, and have emerald green tips. Aerangis luteo-alba var. rhodosticta has yellowish white flowers with a bright orange-red column.

Cultivated plants should be kept moist during periods corresponding to the wet seasons. They should be allowed to dry slightly between waterings during the dry seasons, but should never dry out completely or be left dry for extended periods.

Aerides odorata, Fragrant Aerides

Aerides odorata

Fragrant Aerides
Family: Orchidaceae
Origin: Indochina, Himalaya
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersFragrant

This species is a large to giant sized, highly variable, hot to cool growing epiphyte. Like related genera, Aerides are best grown in open slatted baskets. Aerides species require ample water, every day in warm climates. 700r higher relative humidity is beneficial although the plants can be grown lower. They require bright filtered light with some direct sunlight in the morning, semi-shade area placement is perfect.

Aeschynanthus radicans, Lipstick Plant

Aeschynanthus radicans

Lipstick Plant
Family: Gesneriaceae
Origin: Southeast Asia
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftVine or creeperSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowers

Aeschynanthus is a large genus of Old World tropical herbs. In many respects, they are analogous to the genus Columnea in Central and South America -- both are most often trailing epiphytes with fairly large and showy flowers that are frequently pollinated by birds. The appearance of the various Aeschynanthus species varies widely. The original 'Lipstick Plant' has hard-surfaced shiny leaves, with bright red flowers that emerge from a very dark red tubular calyx, in a fashion reminiscent of lipstick emerging from a tube. It is an epiphyte that grows in the angles of branches in the rain forest. As with all epiphytes, the lipstick plant does not live as a parasite on the tree, but takes its nourishment from fallen leaves and twigs that accumulate in the crevices of branches. Needs plenty of light, but not direct sunlight. They thrive in summer heat, and winter temperatures should not drop below 60 degrees.

Aeschynanthus sp., Lipstick Plant, Lipstick Vine
Aeschynanthus 'Caroline'

Aeschynanthus sp.

Lipstick Plant, Lipstick Vine
Family: Gesneriaceae
Origin: Southeast Asia
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftVine or creeperSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeRegular waterModerate waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowers

A very attractive flowering vine, that is mostly used in hanging pots. Water freely durning spring to fall, but keep the soil a little drier in the winter. The trailing stems can be 2ft long, so they may need pruning after flowering has finished. The plant tolerates most house temperatures. Ideal temperatures are 60 degrees at night but 10 to 15 degrees higher during the day. A. pulcher is one of the classic lipstick plants, and is similar to A. lobbianus -- except for the tan colored calyx.

Aeschynanthus speciosus is a species of trailing ephiphytic flowering plant, in wild growing on branches of trees in the tropical rainforests. The large, fleshy, dark green leaves are up to 4 inches (10 cm) long and 1 1⁄2 inches (3.8 cm) wide and are arranged in groups along the stems.The flowers are orange with the inside of the mouth orange-yellow and with a dark red bar across the lower lobes which also have scarlet borders.

Aeschynanthus speciosus - Lipstick Plant

Aeschynanthus speciosus is perhaps the most spectacular species within its genus. Flowers may be 4 inch long, are orange with the inside of the mouth orange-yellow and with a dark red bar across the lower lobes which also have scarlet borders. The plant is displayed to best advantage in a hanging basket, where the broad surface area allows the trailing stems to root down at intervals and send out abundant side-shoots, perfect as hanging or trailing plant.
These plants require high humidity and warmth throughout the growing season, as well as strong, but not direct, light. These plants are perfect for a greenhouse, sunroom or conservatory.
Perfect for hanging baskets/pots to best display their lovely cascading stems and attractive flowers or in containers placed on a pedestal or windowsill. The plant can be kept in a bathroom window sill or kitchen for increased humidity.
