Hoya carnosa Green

Description

This is the classic wax plant from your childhood. Dark green, large, almond-shaped leaves grow on long vines, which will eventually put out creamy flower clusters. Never cut the long tendrils! Leaves and flower clusters develop from these. Hoyas don’t mind being a bit root bound. Keep in the same pot for years, but remember to fertilize throughout spring and summer. These plants are very sensitive to too much water, so be sure to use a well draining soil with plenty of pumice and/or perlite. Medium to bright indirect light. Photo courtesy of Wikipedia.
