Hoya obovata is one of our very favorite specimen plants. It has large, deep green oval-shaped leaves, often speckled with flecks of white and pink. The leaves emerge on long tendrils that shoot out dramatically from the base of the plant. Over time, these vines grow to be quite long, eventually setting 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!

I am never disappointed by Pistils and the quality of the plants. This Hoya is no different. I received the plant in great condition (they pack the plants so expertly). The plant is full and so healthy!
Love my plant! It traveled 3000 miles and looked fresh from the nursery upon arrival! Can't wait for it to blossom some day. 5 stars to Pistils Nursery!
