Also known as the Wax Plant or Porcelain Flower, the Hoya Carnosa is a climbing, trailing plant with thick, deep green 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.

Native to the lush warm humid Jungles of East Asia makes these plants ideal for adapting to our home environments, especially if allowed to live in a brightly lit bathroom or kitchen where humidity is naturally higher.

The Hoya Carnosa Houseplant is also one of the faster-growing hoya varieties, meaning it'll develop into a large vining statement in a relatively short period of time, adding to its character. Ideal for trailing off a shelf or as a hanging feature.

Please note that there are different varieties and the plant you receive may look slightly different from the ones pictured.

Follow these instructions to keep your Hoya Carnosa healthy and happy.

Water: Allow the soil to dry between each watering as to avoid root rot. Do not allow to stay dry for prolonged periods.
Light: Bright, indirect light, avoid direct sunlight.
Humidity: No Humidity adjustments required, however, higher humidity will be beneficial.
Fertilize: Feed your Hoya during the growing season, every 3-4 weeks. Don't feed in winter.
