Product Description

Hoya plants are tropical vining members of the milkweed family that make exceptionally beautiful house plants. The leaves and fragrant flowers are covered with a waxy, semi-glossy substance, hence the name "wax plant". Hoyas tend to be a little fussy about water and lighting. However, these plants are undemanding and require very little in the way of maintenance as long as their basic needs are met.
