Unknown Houseplant Identification

Hi Judy,

I inherited a couple of plants but I’m not sure what they are, and how to best take care of them.

Hi Nix,


I’m sorry, all I can tell from this picture is that the plant has thick stems which makes it a succulent. I can’t see what the leaf looks like, its size, shape, thickness or anything that might help me identify the plant. Perhaps you could remove a leaf, take a closeup picture and email it to me.


This is a Lipstick Plant. You can read all of my plant care tips for it in the Popular Houseplant section of the website.


This is what it looks like in bloom.
