Hoya carnosa are one of the popular hoyas among enthusiasts due to their relatively simple care requirements (see next tabs). This variation of the carnosa is a classic, and if you look closely, you can see random white speckles on some of the leaves! These plants are ready for trellises, or a nice window to hang down from. 

Note: If your Hoya grows long tendrils, do not cut them! If the tendril finds a spot to grip to, and with enough light, it can develop leaves along the length. Wrap the tendril around a trellis to help your plant develop these leaves.


Pet lovers will be happy to know that these plants are non-toxic. But please don't let cute little Bella nibble these beautiful leaves!

Note: Plants are unique! The plant pictured is meant to give you an idea of the specification and quality of the plant you will receive, but will not be an exact replica.

Light Requirements

Bright indirect

In their natural habitat, hoyas are often shaded by taller plants/trees. Therefore, bright indirect light is best. Although hoyas can be sunstressed by exposing the plant to more sunlight than necessary (sunstressing can result in beautiful reddish leaf colours), direct light that is too intense, can cause burning and fading of leaves. Low light can result in darker leaves.

Water Requirements

Moderate

In general, it is better to wait a day if you are unsure whether to water your hoya. Water when the top half of soil is dry. Consider watering less during the winter season. Note: Be sure not to let the plant sit in pooled water as that can cause root rot.
