Such a classic beauty! Gorgeous medium green tones with rounded leaves, the Hoya carnosa Chelsea is a popular favourite among Hoya lovers. The leaves also tend to have a few dimples in the leaves that give an extra dimension. As it is a green Hoya, the care would be similar to other simple Hoyas that you know. See the following care tabs.

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 Monty 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 some 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.
