Hoya curtisii has tiny, spade-shaped leaves that are olive-green in color, mottled with splashes of silver-blue variegation. Its leaves emerge densely on creeping vines which will form a dense mat over the soil before cascading down the sides of the pot. Like all Hoyas, the leaves, stems and flowers are thick and waxy, and members of the genus are often called Wax Plants. This one is quite hard to find - a Hoya for the collector!
• Light: Perfect for bright, indirect light
• Water: Drought tolerant. Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Use a well-draining soil, and select a planter with drainage. Pet friendly!

I got the 6" hoya curtisii. I love this plant and it reminds me of the ceropegia woodii. The plant I received didn't have any vines trailing over the edges (like in the photos), but it was a really full pot. When I received the plant, it was really happy and in great condition. It only took 2 days travel time to reach me in California, which is great. A week or so later the plant does have a few yellow leaves, but that is to be expected after a few days in a box. Every time I order from Pistils, I'm always happy with the plants I receive and the time it takes the plants to reach me, once shipped.
This was my first order with Pistils and my first curtisii. The plant arrived packaged extremely well and looks very healthy. Will definitely order from Pistils again.
This was my second Pistils Order and the plants was safely packed and arrived as expected. I thoroughly watered it and found a nice bright spot for it and have seen so much new growth! Thank you again for providing a quality product and for the care in ensuring its safe arrival across the US!
