Hoya Carnosa


Hoya Carnosa is a species of tropical plant that is native to Southeast Asia and Australia. It is a vining plant that produces long, slender stems with oval-shaped, dark green leaves that have waxy, succulent-like texture. The plant is often grown for its beautiful clusters of star-shaped, wax-like flowers that bloom in shades of pink, white or cream and produce a sweet fragrance. The flowers typically bloom in summer and last for several weeks. Hoya Carnosa is a relatively low maintenance plant that can tolerate a wide range of light conditions, from bright, indirect light to partial shade. It is often grown in hanging baskets or trained to climb a trellis. The plant is drought-tolerant and can handle dry periods, but it prefers regular watering during the growing season. It is a popular choice for indoor gardens and can also be grown outdoors in tropical and subtropical climates.
