How cute is this Hoya? The Hoya ‘String Bean’, you’ll know exactly why this plant received its name. The dark green leaves beautifully cascade over and continue to outshine most hoyas with their impressively elongated foliage.
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!
