Aeshynanthus Bracteatus 'Thai Purple'

Subscription Save

A very rare plant, Aeshynanthus is a genus of approximately 150 species of epiphytic plants (they hang out in trees, occasionally on rocks), they belong to the family Gesneriaceae meaning they are related to the weird and wonderful Sinningia as well as African Violets and a bunch of other botanical oddities.

Aeshynanthus Bracteatus has a very upright habit compared to some of the other Aeshynanthus species. Its deep green and purple edged leaves are arranged in pairs on dark purple, hairy stems. They produce clusters of tubular flowers at the end of each stem. The flowers are, you guessed it, purple!

    Caring for your Aeshynanthus Bracteatus 'Thai Purple'


    Lots of bright indirect light and a humid position is great for these beauties! They are happy in a window that gets bright indirect light for only a short part of the day, making them perfect for those tricky spots in the house that only get good light for a little while. Low humidity will make the ends of the new leaves brown a little bit but this is nothing to worry about.

    Managing Growth

    Their beautiful pendulous stems are about 40cm long but can eventually grow to a bit over a meter long making them an absolutely breathtaking feature plant if you have the space. After they have finished flowering cut the stems back reasonably hard to encourage prolific branching.


    Wait until the top few centimetres of potting media has dried out before watering heavily. These guys are a bit less drought tolerant than some of the other Aeshynanthus species and prefer to remain evenly moist during hot weather. Keep them a bit drier over winter.

    Our special eco packaging

    No Plant Stress

    Our plant packaging is designed by people know how to keep plants fresh and healthy in transit. Your plants will enjoy a comfortable trip directly from our greenhouse to your door in just a few of days. Your plant will not have to deal with the stress of being bare rooted for transport (how most plants are sent) and you won’t have to deal with the mess and fuss of potting up your new plant when you receive it.

    Stability Support

    The plastic pot will be wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in place, it will then be tied into a specially designed cardboard insert which will keep it stable and upright throughout its journey. The insert will be glued in place on top of your cardboard wrapped ceramic pot to hold it down and your plant up!

    No Re-Potting

    Your plant will come in its plastic pot which we make sure fits perfectly in whichever ceramic pot you choose. Our packaging has been designed to allow us to send your beautiful ceramic pot along with your plant, fully potted, yep in soil, together in the same box.

    Fully Recyclable

    The thing that we’re most proud of is that our packaging is fully recyclable and re-useable so you don’t have to feel bad about generating more packaging waste. In fact you should feel awesome because ordering from us, online, will generate way less emissions than if you were to drive to the nursery to buy a plant. The only plastic you get will be the plastic pot that your plant comes in and these can be re-used or recycled.
