Lipstick plant

Zone 11360 Queens, NY Zone 7 | Lmeyer513 added on April 22, 2018 | Answered

My trailing lipstick Houseplant bloomed on and off beautifully for over a year, then began dropping leaves, having brown spots on the leaves. There are few leaves left. I put it in a more shaded spot. Can it be saved? What happened? Maybe I overwatered?

Overwatering is, almost always, responsible for the death of these plants. This is followed by too little, or too much light.

It is likely that it is beyond saving by this point, but this article will help with the proper care in the future: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/lipstick-plant/growing-lipstick-plants.htm
