A climbing trellis plant the Hoya Carnosa is ideal for beginners and makes a great addition to a bathroom or kitchen. One of the more common members of the Hoya family, the Carnosa has deep green almost round, almond-shaped leaves and given the right care will develop cream-colored tiny star-shaped flowers that grow in clusters. Hoya’s are also called wax plants! This is due to their semi-succulent thick leaves that appear to be made of wax.

Hoya’s grow little stick appendages from their vines called “peduncles”. They may look dry or even brown but they shouldn’t be trimmed from the plant. It's important to continue your routine when these appear as this is where the flowers will bloom from!

        Care Instructions

        Light

        Prefers bright, indirect light or filtered bright light

        Water

        Allow soil to completely dry in between watering. The succulent leaves will hold water. During warmer months, keep the soil moist.

        Temperature

        Average from 65°F - 75°F

        Feeding

        Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10.

        Toxicity

        Non-toxic. Although, it is a great practice to keep your plants away from pets and children.

        Grooming

        Place the plant under a showerhead to remove any dust or debris.

        Care

        Provide a trellis for extra support and keep the plant appearing nice and tidy.

        Leaves

        The Carnosa has deep green almost round, almond-shaped leaves and given the right care will develop cream-colored tiny star-shaped flowers that grow in clusters.

        Repotting

        Can be done every 12-18 months. Choose a pot that is 2” larger in diameter than the original pot. Only do so when necessary as Hoyas prefer to be rootbound.

        Soil

        Use a well-draining, chunky medium.
