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!

I received a very healthy plant and it was packed carefully. So far it is thriving.
My plants arrived in perfect condition and are doing great in my shady Texas front yard! I can’t say enough about the quality of the plants, they settle right in and send out new growth within weeks of arrival. The Hoyas seem to love the shady heat and only need watering once a week or so which is perfect here! They make great accents to my garden hanging from the trees and flowing over the tops of their pots.
I received a flourishing 4" Hoya carnosa Chelsea that came well packaged. This is my second time ordering from Pistils and it definitely won't be the last.
