Codonanthe crassifolia - Hanging plant

Codonanthe crassifolia
A cute hanging plant from Brazil
This rather cute plant grows wild in the tropical rainforests of Brazil. It makes a lovely houseplant and will thrive in a hanging pot in a warm living room. Somewhere out of direct sunlight is best and even in a dark corner, this plant will feel perfectly at home. If you use a tall planter, the branches on your Codonanthe will hang nicely over the edge too - really very decorative. Codonanthe crassifolia is wont to flower with cute, white, tubular flowers with a purplish pink centre, followed by red berries. The waxy looking white into pale pink flowers with the darker centres smell quite delightful too. The newly available plant is related to the better-known Aeschynanthus and cared for in the same way. Consider ordering more than one for a nice look in your home.

Planting+

Plant Codonanthe in a hanging pot a.s.a.p upon receipt. Or use a tall planter that it can hang over the edges. The pot should have holes in the base and hopefully a matching saucer for drainage. You could also use a normal pot with holes, inside a larger planter without and catch the drain-off in there. Add a layer of hydro-pellets, then some fresh potting compost and plant your Codonanthe at the correct height for it to hang over the edge. Fill the pot with more potting compost and press the whole thing carefully in. Do leave sufficient space for watering between the top of the soil and the pot edge.
Water generously immediately and give your plant a nice warm spot (preferably), in part shade. No full sun and preferably not about a radiator. Avoid draughts as much as possible.

Care+

Water your Codonanthe regularly and do not allow it to dry out. It will really prefer rain water, and you'd do well to add some plant food to your watering can too during the growing season.
Codonanthe likes it very humid so regularly spraying with rain water is also highly recommended.
Store your Codonanthe for about six weeks over the winter in a coo, unheated room and water very sparingly.

Extra+

Codonanthe originated in the tropical rainforests of South America where this evergreen plant grows as all epiphytic plants from hanging branches. These plants grow pretty wax-like flowers with a delightful scent. The flowers are speedily followed by berries. The round shaped foliage is a dark green.
Codonanthe is classified under Gesneriaceae.
