Care Notes: Aeschynanthus radicans do very well in hanging baskets and as a potted plant. As an epiphyte, this plant likes soil on the drier end and should only be watered once the soil has dried out to avoid root rot. 

Shipping Notes: 

As a good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants may vary in color, size, and appearance.

Thriving

Purchased this plant awhile back and quite pleased with the prompt delivery, and great condition the plant was in. Plant is producing flowers and well acclimated to its new home. Will purchase more but seems to sell out so quickly that it's gone when I check into see if there are any available.
