Hoya carnosa 'Compacta' - Rope Hoya

$ 15.00

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. 

Like other Hoyas, Hoya carnosa 'Compacta' makes a low-maintenance, easy-care houseplant. Place your Hoya where it will receive bright indirect light and allow to go nearly dry before watering thoroughly. Includes detailed care instructions. 

- 4" pot has 1-2 stems, approximately 2-4" in length.
- 6" pot has multiple stems, approximately 5-8" in length. 

*Limited quantity available. Ships in a plastic nursery pot. Pictures show 6" specimen - natural variation in size and appearance may occur. Planters sold separately.


Items in our Rare Flora collection require special pre-shipping preparation, and ship within 3-5 business days. You'll receive a shipping notification email with tracking when your order ships. Box warmer included at no additional charge as necessary during cold months.

Hindu Rope Plant

I love my Hindu Rope Plant. It had 3 stems and not a leaf was broken. I had been afraid it had frozen because it got delayed in Colorado when the weather was in the single digits but I contacted Pistils and they told me what to do. I plan to repot it today and enjoy it for years. The plant came carefully packed to withstand anything the mail service could do to it. Thank you Pistils for your service, advice packing and beautiful plant. I will be ordering again.
