Hoya carnosa 'Compacta' - Rope Hoya

$ 16.00

Please note: Current 6" Pots are full and short plants that do not yet have trailing vines.

One look at this bizarre plant and you'll understand why it's one of our all time favorite Hoyas. Hoya carnosa 'Compacta' has twisted, waxy leaves that emerge on long rope-like vines, making this Hoya perfect as a hanging plant. Sometimes known by its nicknames, Hindu Rope Hoya and Indian Rope Hoya, this cultivar of Hoya carnosa will eventually produce beautiful clusters of star-shaped pink flowers as it matures. 


 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!


You'll get a healthy Hoya carnosa 'Compacta' that meets our rigorous quality standards in your choice of a 4" or 6" nursery pot – Planters sold separately. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

cute little compacta!

Ordered two of these little guys and they arrived in great condition. They are small, but each has multiple growth points, can’t wait to see how they fill in as the strands grow longer.

Hoya carnosa 'Compacta'

I love my little Hoya. It is the cutest little plant I have ever seen. I saw an article on house plants in general and you and the Hoya were prominently mentioned. I can't wait for it start forming tendrils. Thanks for a lovely plant that arrived in perfect condition. (I have never review a purchase before)
