Hoya carnosa 'Krinkle 8'

$ 28.00

Hoya carnosa 'Krinkle 8' is a wild cultivar of the classic Wax Plant. Its thick, waxy leaves are puckered and folded slightly inward, looking almost like a cross between the standard carnosa and another famous cultivar, the Hindu Rope Hoya. As they lengthen, the long vines can grow up a trellis or will cascade downward, making this a great choice for a hanging plant. The flower clusters are simply beautiful - globes of star-shaped, pink blossoms with red centers and a sweet scent.


 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 'Krinkle 8' that meets our rigorous quality standards in a 6" nursery pot – Hand Thrown Ceramic Planter 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!

Another WINNER and Jaw-Dropper

Plants are always impeccably packed and arrive in perfect, healthy condition, so full and beautiful. The next time you think about wasting your money on a teensy cutting, head over to @pistilsnursery to check if they happen to have it, and spend the bit of extra money. You're going to be so happy once you open their package.

Another beauty from Pistils!

Arrived in perfect condition in the midst of a colder-than-usual Alaskan winter. Beautiful plant, full and healthy. Pistils was prompt to notify me of a slight delay in shipping...their customer service can't be beat!!
