Hoya lanceolata bella - Miniature Wax Plant
Hoya lanceolata subsp. bella has delicate, lance-shaped leaves that emerge light green from orange-pink stems. A subspecies of Hoya lanceolata, the bella doesn't grow quite as large, with individual vines growing to only 18 or so inches, which is why it's often referred to as the Miniature Wax Plant. Hoya lanceolata bella is semi-succulent and drought tolerant, and perfect for bright, indirect light. What's more, this Hoya is a profuse bloomer when the plant reaches maturity. Its clusters of white and pink star-shaped flowers are heavily perfumed, with a scent that is rich and sweet.
• 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!

The Hoya is lovely and quite full. It is doing well and I look forward to the time when it is mature enough to bloom.
I’ve been ordering pretty regularly from Pistil’s since moving into my new house, and everything they’ve sent me is doing really well. This Hoya lanceolata bella is no exception. Its only been about 10 days and I’m seeing new growth. Looks healthy and vibrant. They do an amazing job of wrapping their plants so that they survive the shipping journey and arrive unscathed. Love the variety, too.
My Hoya lanceolata bella is a beautiful, full plant. It was packed carefully with the safety of the long branches in mind. Only a tiny amount of soil spilled out which was amazing! I totally wish the people I have bought orchids from were as careful. I will definitely be buying more plants from Pistils.
