Hoya kentiana 'Variegata'
Hoya kentiana 'Variegata' has the narrow, thick leaves of the standard kentiana, but is splashed with creamy yellow to pink variegation. The effect is a stunning cascade of color that will only intensify as the plant grows. Though these plants are small now, they'll grow long vines flush with foliage, and even clusters of fuzzy, star-shaped flowers.
Previously sold as Hoya wayetii 'Variegata,' we changed our tune when we realized this plant's leaves never have the dark margin we see on normal Hoya wayetii.
(Please note, Hoya identification is challenging prior to flowering, and it's possible that this plant is H. wayetii or a similar species.)
• Light: 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! Read our Hoya journal entry for more care information.
