Hoya carnosa - Wax Plant
Hoya carnosa is the classic Wax Plant from your childhood, a staple of bright kitchen windows. Hoyas are known for their long, vining tendrils, waxy leaves and sweet-smelling flowers. Hoya carnosa has large, dark green, almond-shaped leaves that emerge along its long vines, which will eventually put out clusters of pink flowers with dark red centers.
• 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!

I bought this plant for my mother who had one when I was growing up. She is elated and keep remarking about how good the plant looks! I would absolutely recommend Pistils Nursery! Working with them to ship was super easy and they got the plant there safely!
I had to wait a bit to get my plant but it arrived in great shape! This is the largest plant I’ve purchased so far and spending more was well worth the larger size! A full size plant! That already has sent out shoots to grow more leaves and eventually flowers too! Because of the larger size I shouldn’t have to wait long!
Arrived nice and healthy despite a snowstorm.
