Hoyas are truly back on the map since their early debut in the '70s, now with so many variations around, who wouldn't be keen on becoming a collector?
You’ll fawn over this beauty for its young tender leaves that start out pink while the more mature leaves are either white fringed in deep green or a more marbled piece of artwork with tinges of sage, reds and whites. Alas, the colours and variations are not the only reason for this house plants popularity. It has the ability to produce soft pink, almost Porcelain in appearance, sweetly fragrant star-shaped flowers. When your house plant has reached maturity flowers appear in warmer months and if you treat this beauty correctly the Hoya carnosa ‘Variegata’ 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. The Hoya Carnosa Variegated houseplant 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 latex that can be a skin irritant for pets and humans.
