Hoya carnosa - Wax Plant

$ 10.00

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!


You'll get a healthy Hoya carnosa that meets our rigorous quality standards in your choice of a 4" or 6" nursery pot. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

Not what I expected

It’s took a month to get to me and the plant was so small and not what I expected. The photo was a little deceiving.

Love my little hoya wax plant

My Hoya Carnosa arrived in perfect condition all the way from Portland to Lexington, Kentucky. It’s right at home with many other Hoya varieties I’ve bought from Pistils.
