Psychotria Elata plant - commonly known as Hooker Lips or Hot Lips Plant

Yes, this plant is real and not photoshopped. The Psychotria Elata plant is commonly known as Hooker Lips or the Hot Lips Plant for the shape of its bright red bracts that resemble two luscious lips. Found in the tropical rain forests of Central and South American countries like Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama and Ecuador, it is believed that the Psychotria Elatra plant has evolved into its current shape to attract pollinators including hummingbirds and butterflies.
