Hoya carnosa 'Compacta' - Rope Hoya
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 nickname, 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! Read our Hoya journal entry for more information.

Great Condition Love my Hoya
I've tried other online shops but I have to say, nothing compares to the high quality standards from Pistils Nursery. From the plants to the packaging to the service, hands down Pistils Nursery is the best! My Hoya Carnosa Rope Hoya arrived in perfect condition and is beautiful. It's nice and full and it looks like there are some babies on the way. Thank you Pistils Team for EVERYTHING you do!!
I love the Hoya carnosa 'Compacta' I received from Pistils! As usual, the plant was packed extremely well. Does anyone have any suggestions in regards to cleaning the curled leaves? I usually use a cotton swab but don't feel like it's quite doing the trick.
