We absolutely love this delicate Hoya! The Hoya Linearis is native to Eastern Asia and Australia and has a very tropical look - wonderful hanging tendrils spill from the plant and cascade down the sides like a waterfall.
Hoya Linearis, the wax plant, is perfect in an indoor hanging basket, placed in free-draining soil - it gives a luxuriant feel to a room, imagine walking through the rainforest where plants are hanging all around, punctuating the view. Create this look in your home!
The Hoya plant gives a house a classic look packed with style. It’s easy to care for, just imagine rainforest conditions - it loves humidity. With good care you may be lucky enough to get flowers in the spring and summer - these are creamy coloured and stunning.
Hoya Linearis a wonderful trailing plant that adds panache to any home. It would also make a fabulous houseplant gift for someone special, being quite a cheap houseplant, and it gives real value for money. A perfect present if you’re looking to buy online houseplants for friends or family.
To make your gift extra special, don’t forget to enter your gift message at the basket stage of the checkout and we’ll add a free handwritten card. We won’t include paperwork with prices on it!
