Hoya Pubicalyx, also known as wax plant is a draping succulent vine that produces clusters of star-shaped waxy flowers. This Hoya has green elongated leaf mottled with silver speckles and depending on how much light it gets it can have purple stems.
Hoya Pubicalyx is very easy to care for as long as you keep it in a bright spot and keep it on the dry side. 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! They make for excellent houseplants as they can whit-stand neglect.
The plant is approximately 15cm long and it comes in a plastic nursery pot 11cm.
Soil: Lightweight, fast-draining potting mix
Light: bright indirect
Repotting: Hoya’s like to be pot bound, they need to be repotted very seldom
Please note: Hoya Pubicalyx 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.
