If you're looking for an exotic indoor plant that's very easy to grow, consider wax plant. This unique houseplant is a vine but not a fast-growing one. Hoya has thick waxy leaves and clusters of star-shaped waxy flowers. It is among the most tolerant of all houseplants.
Hoyas are evergreen perennial creepers or vines or rarely, shrubs. They often grow epiphytically on trees; some grow terrestrially, or occasionally in rocky areas. They climb by twining, and with the employment of adventitious roots. They have simple entire leaves, arranged in an opposite pattern, that are typically succulent. Leaves may exhibit a variety of forms, and may be smooth, felted or hairy; veination may be prominent or not, and many species have leaf surfaces flecked with irregular small silvery spots.
The flowers appear in axillary umbellate clusters at the tip of peduncles. Hoya peduncles are commonly referred to as spurs. In most species these spurs are perennial and are rarely shed. Each flowering cycle increases the length of the spur, and in the larger species can eventually reach 27 cm (11 in) or more.
Flower form is typically star-shaped, with five thick, waxy, triangular petals, topped with another star-shaped structure, the corona. Hoya flowers are all shaped like five pointed stars. Some of the species' petals reflex so far that the flowers appear to be round or ball-like. They grow in umbels, or in some species singly. Colors on most species range from white to pink; there are species that exhibit yellow to orange, dark reds to near-black, and there are green flowers. Many are sweetly scented. and most produce abundant nectar.
Wax Plant Growing Instructions/Plant Care
As with most plants, Hoyas respond to good care. However, they resent pampering, hovering, and constant handling and moving. Hoya needs a bright spot where it won’t receive direct sun. Water sparingly.
Grow wax plant in low, medium, or bright light. It tolerates low and medium light, but doesn't typically bloom in these conditions. Like most flowering houseplants, the more light wax plant gets, the more flowers it will produce.
Water wax plant when the potting mix dries out. Don't worry if you forget to water it once or twice --- wax plant doesn't mind. The thick leaves and stems help the plant store water for cases just like that.
What it dislikes: Low-medium light, cold drafty windows. Particularly sensitive to over-watering.
Temperature – give them medium (50 degrees) to warm temperatures during the growing season—spring and summer. The plants go semi-dormant in winter.
Fertilizer – In spring hoyas react favorably to feeding. A liquid food, about every four weeks, three or four times during the growing season will produce a vigorous growth. Withhold food during the winter.
TIP: Do not touch or move the Hoya plant during its blooming period. Some like to mist the leaves frequently, to clean them and increase humidity… but NOT when the plant is budding or in flower.
