Hoya carnosa 'Chelsea'
Hoya carnosa 'Chelsea', with its distinctively puckered and heart-shaped leaves, is a stunning cultivar. Especially thick and waxy, the foliage emerges from long vines that are tinged with pink when fresh. Exceedingly hard to find, Hoya 'Chelsea' is a collector's Hoya, but just as forgiving and easy to care for as most other members of the genus. Eventually, this vigorous grower produces clusters of pink, star-shaped flowers.
• 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 information.

I love Hoyas! My first was a cutting from an aunt in 1965. I have them all in a very sheltered enclosed patio. The recent ones from Pistils are the finest I have ever seen. I look forward to buying more! Sharon Goodman
