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!

Healthy plant was delivered with much more foliage than shown in the pictures - very pleased!
This is a very healthy and lovely plant. Many mature leaves and tendrils already formed on this 6" carnosa. Thank you!
This was packaged very well and arrived in perfect condition. The plant was larger and had more leaves than I expected. It even had a few new leaves just starting to grow that have doubled in size during the week I've had it.
