Trailing with small orange flowers
Hi, I'd like to know what species this is, I picked the plant up from a dollar store.
It has squat, oval leaves and a tiny (1cm blossom) orange flower with pointed petals.
I think the plant needs more sun, because in the last week it's gotten leggy and stopped blooming... I've since moved it!
Thanks for all your help!!
Hi Rosanne, sorry that I don't recognize this plant; the only thing that comes to mind is the Lipstick Plant, or Aeschynanthus, of which there are many different ones. Some have really glossy leaves, but others are matte - most have either orange or yellow flowers, and they do need bright filtered light to look their best. Have a look here to see if these look similar:
This is called Goldfish Plant, or Nematanthus and is a similar genus.
Without seeing exactly what the flowers look like, it's hard to narrow it down. You can post again if you have a picture of the flower.
Hope that helps!
