Scientific Name: Hoya carnosa
Also known as the Wax Plant or Porcelain Flower, the Hoya Carnosa is a climbing, trailing plant with thick, almond-shaped leaves. They are really easy to take care of making them a great plant for beginners, and, in time, they may produce small star-shaped cream flowers that grow in bunches.
Our Hoya Carnosa comes in a 16cm Nursery Hanging Basket and is also available potted in a 19cm Italian Terracotta Pot with a Drip Tray.
Please note that there are different varieties and the plant you receive may look slightly different from the ones pictured.
