Also known as the Wax Plant or Porcelain Flower, the Hoya Pubicalyx is a climbing, trailing plant with thick, lance-like silver-flecked leaves which start out a brilliant deep purple and as they mature turn an attractive deep green.

They are really easy to take care of making them a great plant for beginners, and, in time, they may produce sweetly fragrant dark purple star-shaped flowers. When your house plant has reached maturity flowers appear in warmer months and if you treat this stunner correctly it will dependently bloom for you.

This perfectly dreamy trailing house plant is uncomplicated in its care routine and requires bright light, warmth, and slight humidity to prosper. All of these factors make it the perfect indoor dweller. Hoya Pubicalyx does like a good drink routinely but prefers slight dry spells between each, which is ideal for the more occupied plant lover.

Wax plants will turn heads when allowed to drape their fast-growing tendrils from a high shelf or hanging basket. Dress this looker up in a classic number such as a ceramic planter or a simple hanging basket to draw attention to its striking leaf variations.

Please note: Hoya’s contain a latex that can be a skin irritant for pets and humans but generally is non-toxic.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Follow these instructions to keep your Hoya Pubicalyx healthy and happy.

Water: Keep soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Typically, water the plant when the soil recedes slightly from the edge of the pot. In winter, keep the soil a little drier.
Light: Very bright indirect light, especially if you'd like your Hoya to flower.
Humidity: Medium Humidity should be fine. Place in "stable" - not too humid or drafty. 
Fertilize: Balanced Liquid Fertilizer about every 4 weeks in the Spring and Summer
