Ruched ribbons of curled and pleated leaves stream from the base of this plant with a quirky irregularity, giving the Hoya Carnosa Compacta a vibrant, lively personality. The randomized mix of greens from the lighter underside and glossy topside of the foliage run along the vines, acting as a backdrop for the elegant spheres of blush, star-like flowers.
Cover that Couch! Hoya flowers produce drops of sticky nectar that may drip. This is completely normal, but remember to protect your furniture.
When to water! If the leaves seem a little too folded or puckered, the plant is asking for a drink.
Bring on the Blooms! This plant needs heat, humidity and very bright light to flower. A bathroom with a southern exposure is the winner.
