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 variegation 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 the checkout and we’ll make sure it’s beautifully written for your recipient. No paperwork included!
Easy care - suitable for beginners.
