Lovely in a hanging pot with its dark curly waxy leaves and during late summer, clusters of bright red flower emerge from its sepals like a protruding lipstick and if in a happy spot she can flower throughout the year. Requires lots of bright light, well-draining succulent soil, moist soil and rather a little dry than wet. Needs 4-5 hours of bright light in order to bloom, south or west facing window with sheer curtain in between. Prune back by cutting directly above a leaf after flowering to promote new growth and by removing 2-4 leaves from the stem, these can be placed in water to root or dipping the stem in rooting hormone and placing into moist succulent soil. Use diluted liquid or slow-release fertiliser every 2-3 weeks during spring to mid-summer. Prone to root rot and fugus resulting in yellowing of leaves, or if left too dry or the place is too dark, the leaves will drop off.
