Lighting for your Aeschynanthus
A bright spot without too much direct sunlight is perfect. By that we mean, avoid direct sunlight for extended periods. Curly Wurly will reward you with continuous red flowers if you get the lighting right. Not enough light and you might not get as many flowers.
Watering your Aeschynanthus
Keep the soil moist but not soggy. Water Curly Wurly thoroughly and then allow her to dry out again before watering. This will probably equate to watering once a week depending on the location of Curly Wurly. Always stick a finger in the soil to see if she needs watering.
Humidity for your Aeschynanthus
A humid environment for Curly Wurly will be perfect. Mist her several times a week to keep her happy.
Fertiliser for your Aeschynanthus
Fertilise monthly in the spring and summer if you want her flowers to keep on popping.
Repotting your Aeschynanthus
Repot when Curly Wurly's roots grow out of her pot. She will be okay in the same pot until next year.
Aeschynanthus Plant care problems
