I have searched on the board and on the web long and hard for the name of this plant but I can't figure it out so I'm asking for help, I first aquired it about a year ago, I cannot for the life of me remember where though. It grows quite tall, likes to grow up 'walls' and the leaves remind me a bit of a columnea species, any ideas?


thanks!

To me, it looks like an Aeschynanthus species... looks very similar to all of my young rooted cuttings of it. (Also known as the Lipstick Plant.)

Thanks! wow I never paid any attention to the lip stick plants, but now that I looked them up I think your right, but now I wonder what kind of Aeschynanthus it is...

Thanks guys! But I'm not 100% sure from pics that I've seen. I also went to look at a lipstick plant today at a local nursery and I saw some differences, I also came across another genus called Marcgrevia, any ideas? If I don't find anything I am most likely gonna take your guys word for it and call it a Aeschynanthus. Thanks again!

Based on the nodes, it's probably a Codonanthe or possibly a Nematanthus. The only sure way to ID is to wait for flowers.
