hoya tricolour

This house plant, Hoya carnosa 'Tricolor', is a great trailing or hanging house plant. It can eventually hang to about 1.2 metres or more. Hoya is a family of succulent vines and is otherwise known as a 'wax plant'. The leaves have a waxy coating which cuts down on water loss. Hoya are loved particularly for their fragrant flowers and this particular variety will eventually produce a cluster of ball-shaped pinkish white blooms, particularly when grown in a light spot. They tend to hang down rather like mini-umbrellas. They are highly perfumed and tend to scent the whole room!

  • Hoya carnose 'Tricolor' is named after its variegated foliage and the fact that new grow is tinged pink.
  • Drought tolerant, these can go outdoors during the milder weather.
  • Keep out of bright sunlight. They will do well on an east-facing windowsill.
  • Very easy to grow.
  • Do not over water.
  • They like to fit snugly into their pot. When re-potting don't be tempted to go more than one size up.
  • Sold in a 14cm pot
