Hoya lanceolata ssp. bella - Miniature Wax Plant
Hoya lanceolata subsp. bella has delicate, lance-shaped leaves that emerge light green from orange-pink stems. A subspecies of Hoya lanceolata, the bella doesn't grow quite as large, with individual vines growing to only 18 or so inches, which is why it's often referred to as the Miniature Wax Plant. Hoya lanceolata bella is semi-succulent and drought tolerant, and perfect for bright, indirect light. What's more, this Hoya is a profuse bloomer when the plant reaches maturity. Its clusters of white and pink star-shaped flowers are heavily perfumed, with a scent that is rich and sweet.
• 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! Read our Hoya journal entry for more care information.

My lacunosa was in such good condition when it arrived. For the amount of plant I got for the price, I was very pleased. Always love my purchases from Pistils and always looking forward to ordering from them again.
Hoya lanceolata bella
What a beautiful plant! Looking forward to the blooms. Was wrapped very careful and arrived in perfect condition. Sorry, but I don’t know how to include a photo.
I bought 2 of these little gems, one for me and one for my mom. I’m so excited to give it to her since she had one a long time ago and it always flowered for her too. Plants arrived safely and I’m very satisfied. :-)
