My wife bought this at a new lumberyard here in town. It says it's a Lipstick Plant but from pictures I've looked at on Google I can't seem to find a match.

It does look like a lipstick plant. Blooms will help narrow down which one.

Thanks, any idea when it blooms? We've moved it in from outside to a north window since I don't think it really likes the Texas heat even though it was in the shade hanging on the porch.

Your plant is big enough to bloom so it could bloom anytime.

Thanks, I'll have to check it closely for buds to see if there are any.

It's definitely Lipstick Plant (Aeschynanthus) and reminds me of Lipstick Plant (Aeschynanthus radicans 'Twister')
