Lovely, easy to grow plant. Cuttings root very easily.

Please note that quite often Aeschynanthus longicaulis is sold as Aeschynanthus 'Black Pagoda'. A. longicaulis has green flowers, as illustrated in the pictures on this page. A. 'Black Pagoda' has orange flowers. The leaves are very similar, but the flowers are easy to tell apart.

Leaves will be tightly spaced, thicker, and more distinctly marked in bright indirect light. To hand pollinate, take pollen from a newer flower (anthers protrude prominently from the flower) and place on an older flower (stigma protrudes).
