Lipstick plants need regular watering to make sure the soil never completely dries out. To know how often to water a lipstick plant, gently press the soil. The top 1” (2.5 cm) of the earth should be dry. Water more frequently in summer when the weather is hot.
Water your Christmas cactus only when the soil gets dry to the touch. But during the flowering season, it is crucial to keep the soil evenly moist by misting it frequently.
Best Growing Conditions
Lipstick plants need soil that is consistently moist but well-draining. Grow your lipstick plant in a bright location away from direct sunlight. Ideal temperatures are between 65 and 80°F (18 – 30°C) with high humidity. Feed your plant once a month with organic plant fertilizer.
