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 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!

Plant is beautiful. Arrived perfectly packaged and is doing well in its new location. I will be ordering again.
Grandma had a beautiful, enormous Rope Hoya. When she passed, mom took cuttings and grew the same hoya in her yard for decades. When she passed, I took cuttings home, but the plant only lasted 5 years in my care. Thanks to Pistils Nursery, there's a new generation of rope hoya in the family! So far, this little rarity is doing great. Thank you, Pistils!!
Excellent quality and packed like a gem!
