Product Description

Hoya carnosa, commonly known as wax plant or Hindu rope plant, is a popular perennial vine prized for its attractive foliage and fragrant, star-shaped flowers. Native to Eastern Asia and Australia, this plant belongs to the Apocynaceae family. It features thick, waxy leaves arranged in pairs along cascading stems, giving it a distinctive appearance. The flowers, which typically bloom in clusters, emit a sweet scent and come in various colors, including white, pink, and red. Hoya carnosa is often grown indoors as a houseplant but can also thrive outdoors in frost-free climates.

Cultivation:

  1. Light: Place Hoya carnosa in bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves. However, some morning sun or filtered light is beneficial for flowering.

  2. Temperature: Maintain a consistent temperature between 60-80°F (15-27°C) for optimal growth. Protect the plant from drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations.

  3. Watering: Allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings, then thoroughly water the plant. Reduce watering during the winter months when growth slows down.

  4. Soil: Plant Hoya carnosa in a well-draining potting mix, such as a blend of peat moss, perlite, and orchid bark. A slightly acidic to neutral pH is preferred.

  5. Humidity: Provide moderate to high humidity levels, especially indoors. Mist the foliage regularly or place the plant on a pebble tray filled with water to increase humidity around the plant.

  6. Fertilization: Feed Hoya carnosa with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the dormant period in winter.

  7. Pruning: Trim back leggy growth and remove dead or yellowing leaves to promote a bushy, compact shape.

  8. Support: Provide a trellis, stake, or other support for climbing vines to encourage upward growth and prevent the plant from becoming too tangled.

By following these cultivation tips, you can enjoy the lush foliage and beautiful flowers of Hoya carnosa in your home or garden.
