Strange you should say that, my hot lips has lost all its red in the last few weeks I had it last year and there was no problem with the colour at all.The one in the picture is OK.but thats a different one.
I took some cutting of Hot Lips a month or so back and they were rooted in 10 days.some money to be made growing them, how much are they about £6.00.each
