  All pictures above - Aeschynanthus radicans 'variegata' - a really nice hanging basket, long stems with medium
green leaves, the bloom calyx is dark burgundy brown and the bloom is bright red.  This plant succumb during the
winter, I don't know if it was due to being too cold or the smoke from the woodstove.  All of the
Aeschynanthus I
have dropped their leaves and started dying back to the bases, a few have resprouted on the remaining stems,
but most are completely regrowing.  I did take cuttings of this plant and will continue keep cutting rooted in case it
happens again.

 I also have: Thai Red, Thai Pink, Mona Lisa and am growing a couple of seed sets of species.
