Hoya obovata is a stunning Hoya with waxy, oval leaves speckled with flecks of pink and white.
The leaves emerge on long tendrils that shoot out dramatically from the base of the plant. Over time, these vines grow to be quite long, eventually setting sweet-smelling flowers that look like little clusters of pink stars.
Hoya obovata will happily climb up a stake or trellis, or set your pot in a hanger or on high shelf and let the vines cascade.
Pot Size: 130mm Hanging Pot
Hoyas thrive in bright, indirect light. Can be grown indoors, or outdoors in a protected area. Do not place in direct sunlight as it will scorch the foliage.
Water Hoyas well over spring and summer, then allow the soil or potting mix to almost dry out before watering again. In autumn and winter allow the planting medium to dry out before watering again.
Plant Hoyas into a loamy, free draining soil or 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.
Hoyas are on the ASPCA's Non Toxic to Pets list. Best practice is always to keep houseplants out of reach of small children and pets.
