Hoya pubicalyx is a vigorous vining plant with deep green lanceolate leaves, eager to climb up a trellis or cascade gracefully over the sides of its pot. Its leaves are often mottled with flecks of silvery variegation, and depending on how much light it receives, the stems can take on shades of purple. Native to the Philippines, we get many different cultivars of Hoya pubicalyx, such as 'Pink Silver,' and choose from the very best available. Eventually, clusters of fragrant star-shaped flowers appear on the vine which, depending on the cultivar, vary from white to pink, red and purple.
• 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 and great for beginners! Read our Hoya journal entry for more care information.

First time customer, 5 plants ordered were amazingly full and green. Glad I found you on YouTube.
My Hoya pubicalyx, 6 in, arrived across country in excellent condition. It was packed very well and looks lush a week later. I am so pleased with every order placed with Pistils.
A few bent leaves even though the plant was carefully packed, but they bounced back after a good watering. Living its best life alongside my Hoya multiflora. One happy camper here!
