Hoya carnosa 'Compacta' - Rope Hoya
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!

This plant is SO a cute I love it. I just planted it in a tiny terracotta pot and can’t wait for it to grow its ropes.
Plants came in good condition and are thriving!
Very beautiful plant! Mine doesn’t look like the one in the photo but hopefully with time, its vines will grow & look like the plant in the photo
