Hoyas A - K

Porcelain Flower or Wax Flower. Hoyas are succulent plants that require bright light to produce their fragrant clusters of star shaped waxy flowers, and make easy houseplants. They should be allowed to dry somewhat between watering. These trailing or twining vines feature spectacular clusters of star shaped waxy flowers which are often intensely fragrant. Flowers are produced on long-lived spurs which should never be removed. They appreciate warm conditions. Minimum temperature of 50F is recommended although hardier varieties will take down to 28F for a very brief time. Typically the plants bloom larger and better as they mature. We offer established plants, not cuttings.

Note: Botanists have recently reclassified Hoya and Dischidia as members of the Apocynaceae family, subfamily Asclepiadoideae.

Ceropegia and Dischidia are similar Hoya relatives.

Since Dischidia and Hoya grow very slowly and to keep up with demand, we must limit purchases to only 1 for each variety.

Bushman's Pipe, Horny Wonder, Condom Plant

This unusual conversation piece produces in abundance strange looking green and white flowers in late summer. It has a unique method of pollination. The tubular 2½ inch flowers are lined inside with downward pointing hairs that temporarily trap insects. They are then released the next day covered with pollen. With thick leafless twining stems, it is best displayed in a hanging basket. Plant in partial shade with a well-draining cactus mix and allow to dry out between waterings. Needs protection from freezing. Native to South Africa. A detailed description of this weird plant can be found at PlantZAfrica.com. Apocynaceae

Parachute or Umbrella Plant

New! The common name of this small succulent vine refers to its flowers that are shaped somewhat like parachutes or umbrellas. The flowers are even more unusual in that they give off a scent to trap flies. As the flies slide down the flower tube to the base they get covered in pollen. The flies are released later, as the flower withers, to pollinate other parachute flowers. It's fairly easy to grow as a basket plant or in a dry terrarium in well-drained soil and bright light (not direct sunlight). Native to Mozambique, South Africa, and Swaziland.

Apple Leaf

This Hoya relative has succulent, soft green, 1 inch rounded leaves turning grayish with age with new foliage emerging pinkish in color. Has ivory white flowers. Easy. Outdoors provide it with filtered light, indoors a bright area. Good drainage is essential. With its cascading form, it makes an easy to grow hanging basket. Can also be used in a large terrarium. This unidentified Dischidia was named after Geri Ham Young, a succulent collector in Honolulu, by Hoya specialist Ted Green of Hawaii. It could be related to Dischidia oiantha, whose leaves are more elongated. We have seen this plant sold elsewhere, likely in error, as the species Dischidia oiantha and as Dischidia milnei. USDA Zones 9b - 11. Apocynaceae
