Aeschynanthus speciosus, also known as the Basket plant, is a species of flowering plant in the family Gesneriaceae. There are many species of Aeschynanthus, all of which have long, trailing stems and bright flowers. The large, fleshy, dark green leaves are up to 4 inches (10 cm) long and 1 1⁄2 inches (3.8 cm) wide and are arranged in groups along the stems. The flowers can be as long as 4 inches (10 cm) and grow in clusters that usually consist of 6–20 flowers. Most of the time they are shaded in different colors, from orange–yellow in the lower area to orange–red at the tip with a blotched red inside and a yellow streaked throat.
