Tightly growing, curly foliage of the Hoya Compacta is fascinating to observe and touch. They look super chunky and fleshy but are actually relatively thin, their growing habit incorporating an element of surprise.
Once a year, this succulent will delight you with a dazzling display of star-shaped clustered flowers, typical of the Hoya genus. As a cascading plant, you'll be rewarded by this spectacle as the flowers adorn the trailing branches. To show off this charming characteristic, consider styling your plant on a shelf, or in a hanger. They'll also look great as a tabletop plant, with its branches spreading out on the surface.
Hoya Compacta is a popular houseplant due to its easy care nature: Place it in a brightly lit area to encourage it to flower. Water it generously whenever you feel the top 2-3cm of soil has dried out.
Follow these instructions to keep your Hoya houseplant healthy and happy.
