Description

Hoya Carnosa Compacta is a draping succulent vine that produces clusters of star-shaped waxy flowers. The thick, twisted, curly, cupped leaves of a Hindu Rope Plant are why it’s often called Krinkle Kurl. Hoya Carnosa Compacta can be found in solid green or with variegated leaves. This type of Hoya is very easy to care for as long as you keep it in a bright spot and are careful with water. Like many other types of Hoya’s, this species is epiphytic in its natural habitat, which means it’s actually an air plant with crinkly succulent leaves.

Many people swear that Hoya’s are the easiest to care for houseplants!

The plant is approximately 40cm long and it comes in a plastic nursery pot 14cm.

Soil: Lightweight, fast-draining potting mix

Light: bright indirect

Humidity: 40%-60%

Repotting: Hoya’s like to be pot bound, they need to be repotted very seldom

Please note: Hindu Rope won’t flower unless it receives very bright indirect sunlight. A south-facing window would be ideal, although eastern and western exposures may also work if they are bright enough. This plant will even tolerate a little direct sunlight.

If you’re into Hoya’s (and who isn’t?!) then you should also see Hoya Linearis, Hoya Bella or Hoya Kerii.
