Aeschynanthus “Kinabalu“ is a beautiful, rare plant that came to us from Geoff Wong decades ago. It was originally collected on Mt Kinabalu and most closely resembles Aeschynanthus speciosus but we have had Gesneriad experts exam it, and they think it may be something else unique!
Regardless, it’s a fantastic addition to any highland greenhouse or sunny windowsill. The flowers are simply stunning!
These are single rooted cuttings and will come bare-root and should be potted into a long fibered sphagnum moss mix.
