Hoya carnosa 'Krinkle 8'
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!
