Hoya compacta outside variegate, commonly known as Indian Rope Hoya, is a slow growing Hoya producing long hanging stems with heavily twisted, pendant leaves giving the appearance of a thick rope. The foliage of this variety is green with creamy white margins.
Plant it into a free draining potting mix. They may take a year or two to really flower and they are at their best when they are pot bound.
Use a fertiliser high in Potash and spray some on the leaves to promote flowering. They need enough light in order to flower, either artificial or sun so try for six hours a day. It's worth doing this because the flower is stunning!
It likes to be watered thoroughly and then left alone until it almost dries out before being watered again.
Will be shipped potted.

I understand it's a plant, so naturally they're all going to look different, but it was pretty tiny, and no noticeable healthy, new growth. It's about half the size of the pictured plant and not too happy, but as it's a verigate, I understand there will be variation. I'll hopefully be
able to get it healthy and happy again.
