Hoya Banner

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.
