We really love this wonderfully coloured hanging houseplant, it’s delicate and delightfully variegated.


Hoya Carnosa, or wax plant is a beautiful small hanging houseplant with long graceful stems covered in waxy leaves.  It is a type of vine, growing to 1m long if kept in the right conditions.


It has wonderful pink and yellow varigation to the glossy leaves and also produces pinkish white, star shaped blooms which have a honey scented perfume.


It will look wonderful draped over a shelf or fireplace - it is a jungle dweller at heart so likes humidity.


It really is a style plant and one that would make one of those amazing house plant gifts that will never be forgotten! Why buy flowers when you can buy a house plant that will last many times longer!


Ideal as a houseplant gift - an unusually delightful surprise for someone! We’ll add a free, handwritten card to your delivery if you buy this houseplant as a gift - you just need to include your gift message at the basket stage of checkout and we’ll make sure it’s beautifully written for your recipient. No paperwork included!
