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!

My HO came in and I was very very happy! PN did not skimp, well worth the price. She came in full of luscious leaves, I am exquisitely pleased with my purchase. PN took great care in packaging. I could not be happier with my HO. Highly recommend!
My new Hoya was packaged so securely and came in great shape. I was a little worried since she had to travel to the middle of the country. I watered her and put her in a nice warm place to acclimate. I was very appreciative of the plant care instructions that came with my order.
Very happy with my purchase. Perhaps not the cheapest obovata you could find to buy, but absolutely reasonably priced for its size. Packaging was good and shipping time was okay. Will buy from Pistil’s again.
