Hoya carnosa 'Compacta' - Rope Hoya

$ 15.00

One look at this bizarre plant and you'll understand why it's one of our all time favorite Hoyas. Hoya carnosa 'Compacta' has twisted, waxy leaves that emerge on long rope-like vines, making this Hoya perfect as a hanging plant. Sometimes known by its nicknames, Hindu Rope Hoya and Indian Rope Hoya, this cultivar of Hoya carnosa will eventually produce beautiful clusters of star-shaped pink flowers as it matures. 


 Light: Perfect for bright, indirect light
• Water: Drought tolerant. Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry to the touch 
• Considerations: Use a well-draining soil, and select a planter with drainage. Pet friendly!


You'll get a healthy Hoya carnosa 'Compacta' that meets our rigorous quality standards in your choice of a 4" or 6" nursery pot – Planters sold separately. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

Gorgeous, Healthy Hoya!

I am blown away at The customer service, attention to detail, and the quality and health of my first order from Pistils! I love my beautiful, thriving Hoya! It was perfectly packaged for protection, and arrived with instructions and helpful tips. I will highly recommend the nursery to my friends, and I highly recommend them to you if you are considering a purchase!

My plants arrived in perfect condition. They were exactly what I hoped they would be. Special thanks to Jesse Waldm am. He is great to do business with, as is the entire staff at Pistols. Wish I needed more plants.

LOVE IT !!!!!!!

Arrived without any soil. It had all fallen out, but I quickly found some soil of my own--and--- it seems to be doing fine. All of the plants in this order lost a great deal of soil ( more in the bottom of the box than in most of the plants). I do not think any of them suffered damage because of he loss ....thank goodness. Very pretty, "sweet" plant. Thank you Kathy Baker
