Psychotria Elata or Hooker’s Lips: The Most Kissable Plant

Wow, you might be never seeing this plant in your life, because this is most elegant pair of red, luscious lips belong to a plant well-known as Psychotria elata, a tropical tree found in the rain forests of Central and South American countries like Cost Rica, Colombia, Eucador, and Panama. Lovingly, Psychotria elata is called Hooker’s Lips or the Hot Lips Plants. However; this beautiful plant has apparently evolved into its present shape to be a magnet for pollinators including hummingbirds and butterflies. According to Oddity Central, the bracts are only kissable for a short while, before they spread open to expose the plant’s flowers. So if you wanted to plant this amazing Mother Nature, find yourself a Hot Lips plant and do it while you still can, but make sure the bracts are only kissable for a short time.
