Hoya Wayetti stands out from other Hoya varieties because of its many long, thin, slightly curved green leaves which have burgundy edges.
One of our pet friendly options for those of you with furry friends who like to nibble on your plants!
Other common names for Hoya are: Wax plant, Waxvine, Honey Plant and Porcelain Flower. They are relatively easy to care for and are known to have air-purifying qualities. Their leaves are thick and full like a succulents, they can store a lot of water in them so you are more likely to over water this plant than underwater it. If you treat them right, Hoyas have been know to live for decades!
Hoya are a vining plant, they will happily hang off of a shelf or in a hanging basket but if you give them a trellis or pole they will rapidly climb it. If you look after your Hoya right, it will reward you by sending out cluster of star-shaped flowers which form on the stems.
Due to the rigid and inflexible nature of the Hoya Wayetii's leaves, they are prone to some breakage during shipping. When this occurs the leaves will leak a milky white liquid which dries to become a powdery white coating - use a cloth and some water to gently wipe away any of this residue.
Light: Bright, indirect light will make this plant thrive. They can grow in a lower light, however it will stunt growth and the plant will not flower.
Water: Allow the top half of soil to dry out before watering during growing months. During the winter reduce watering considerably.
Food: During growing months apply a weak fertiliser once a month.
Humidity: Will tolerate a normal household humidity however for increased growth and bigger leaves an increased humidity will be ideal.
