Hoya obovata is one of our very favorite specimen plants. It has large, deep green oval-shaped leaves, often speckled with flecks of white and pink. The leaves emerge on long tendrils that shoot out dramatically from the base of the plant. Over time, these vines grow to be quite long, eventually setting sweet-smelling flowers that look like little clusters of pink stars. Hoya obovata will happily climb up a stake or trellis, or set your pot in a hanger or on high shelf and let the vines cascade.
• 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!

Pistils Nursery takes great care to ship their healthy plants to folks as myself that live on the East Coast. The Hoya obovata is lovely with it's dark green speckled leaves.
For my second order, I got the Hoya obovata and it arrived quickly and damage free! I appreciate the care with which the orders are shipped. This Hoya has acclimated and is very healthy and perky!
Arrived with all healthy looking leaves. It's a very dense plant with big round leaves. I think it's even more beautiful than the last obovata plant I purchased from Pistils a few years back.
