Hoya obovata is one of our very favorite specimen plants. It has large, deep green oval-shaped leaves, often splashed with flecks of white and pink. Over time, the plant grows long vines and eventually sweet-smelling flowers that look like little clusters of pink stars. Hoya obovata will happily climb up a stake or trellis, or set your pot in a hanger or on high shelf and let the vines cascade.
• 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!

Full 6" plant
Lovely Hoya obovata! It's getting acclimated, so I expected some leaf drop but have only lost 2 in a month. Really happy with the size for the price.
Received a beautiful, healthy plant which was so well packed and protected! A welcome addition to my ever growing plant family! Have bought several plants from Pistal’s, and every one has been perfect and healthy, which is pretty amazing seeing as how I live on the opposite side of the country!!
