The Hoya carnosa is a popular houseplant all over the world. These variegated varieties have yellow splashed leaves and the occasional pink one standing proudly amongst the rest.
Hoyas are known for their vining habits and on its vining stems carnosa produces abundant long, wavy shaped leaves with a firm consistency that are waxy to the touch. As they grow the stems will get longer and the plant will trail from its planter.
The colours of the Hoya carnosa are perhaps the most attractive feature with green leaves that have mixed patterns of white yellow and pink, and which make for great looking desktop plants.
The Hoya carnosa is definitely easy to care for and can tolerate low and medium light, though it prefers brighter light areas. It will also tolerate some drought being able to store water in its succulent leaves. Watering should be done when the top two inches of the soil are dry.
Whether it is a gift for someone else or for yourself, use the Hoya carnosa as a little growing reminder that we can use nature to nurture.
Important to know: As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary.
