Hoya carnosa Tricolor known as wax plants have beautiful, long slender stems covered with thick, glossy, succulent leaves. It is popular as a houseplant due to its attractive foliage and clusters of sweet scented, star shaped pink-white flowers.

Other common names include Waxvine, Honey Plant and Porcelain Flower. They are relatively easy care and have air-purifying qualities.

Light: Needs bright, indirect light. Strong direct sunlight will scorch the leaves. Will benefit from some early morning or late afternoon sunshine. Can cope in light shade but unlikely to bloom. Does well under artificial light making it ideal for office environments.

Water: Hoya are succulents and store water. Allow the top half of the soil to dry out between watering, then water deeply and allow to drain thoroughly. Do not over-water as too much water will kill the plant. Water sparingly in winter.

Temperature: Happy in room temperatures from 18-24°C. Avoid draughts and extreme temperatures. Prefers to be kept warm ( above 16°C).

Humidity: Prefers higher levels of humidity.

Feed: Apply a weak general purpose fertiliser during the summer. 

Toxicity: Sap contains latex which is a skin irritant and is considered toxic, therefore keep away from children and animals.

Origin: Eastern Asia and Australia.
