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. Making it the ideal candidate for a striking Moss ball display.

Hand-tied in the classic Japanese Kokedama technique our Mossballs is made with water retaining coconut peat mixture and real moss, keeping the roots of the plants moist. 

Dimensions: Approx 15-20cm high, Ball √ė approx 25cm¬†

All of our Mossballs come with free extra cord and a carabiner.
Install a U-Shaped hook, attach the cord with carabiner, and simply clip in your mossball.

Standing
For a standing installation, simply place your Mossball within a presentation-dish on whichever surface you like.
