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!

This plant arrived robust and impeccably packed, still with some moisture in the soil despite extreme heat and delayed travel. The plant acclimated quickly and has already pushed out new growth. This was my first time ordering from Pistils and I’m very satisfied.
My Hoya carnosa arrived in good condition. The pot was full, not skimpy. Lovely plant.
My Hoya plant came in perfect condition. She's super green with long stems. She was neatly packed before sent out and arrived with leaves intact. So far my hoya seems happy with weekly watering and even has some growth!
