Hoya Plants

The Hoya Plant is one of the easiest plants to grow and are often fragrant. The wax plant, as it is sometimes called, loves to be ignored and they are part of the succulent family. They do well in hanging baskets both indoors and out, they can be put in a tree or on a trellis. Hoyas like bright indirect light, many can take partial sun... The plant has gorgeous blooms that are called umbels. This is a bonus to the already beautiful plant. Each plant has its own personality. The older the plant the more magnificent the blooms. Hoya plants have a wide variety of leaf shapes and colors.

Bella Varigated

This hoya can be a bit fussy at times as it seems to perfer a more moist soil than others so it is suggested that it gets kept more on the moist side. The small varigated pointed leaves are held on fairly stiff stems.

Brevialata

Callistophylla

Callistophylla is a tough hoya with its thick leaves that show a dark pattern veining. Grow this in filtered light and keep on the dry side for best results.

This is another carnosa however this plant can be distinguished by the white or cream border on its leaves. Often there are sports or mutations or seedlings.

Compacta

Compacta also known as Hindu Rope is a slower growing plant with leaves that are spaced close together in a twisted and scrunched form. Care needs to be taken when growing this plant as mealy bugs can easily hide in the tight crevices on this plant. It is grown best in a high light situation. In lower light the plant will not flower.

This hoya is a slow grower to start, when it takes off it gets to be a very showy looking plant. The greenish purple, very flected small round leaves with a point are very pretty and form a nice full basket.

Densifolia

Dischidia Irian Jaya 28

Dischidia ovata

Dischidia 'Snaily'

Although not technically a hoya, dischidia is so closely related I group them together. This hanging or trailing plant produces the most interesting snail shell shaped flowers as it matures. An interesting and well worth addition to your collection.

Diptera

Elliptica

Engleriana

Hoya engleriana is a very small leafed Hoya from Thailand that has expanded its range to Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. It is found in mountainous ranges that are often fog and mist shrouded. Can be very difficult but grows rapidly in the right conditions.

Glabra

Glabra is a large leaf hoya that is sure to enjoy. I have not flowered this one yet and there is not a lot of information I have found. It seems to grow well like most hoya with the occasional drying out period.

Heuschkeliana (Yellow)

Ilagiorum

This fast growing must have hoya, ilagiorum is a native of the Philippines

kanyakumariana

This is small growing non-twiner with white flowers from India. It is a perfect plant to grow under artificial light; not only does it do well and flower profusely, but it does not get too large..

Kerrii

Also known as the sweetheart plant or the Valentines Hoya. Kerrii is a slow grower in my opinion, it is often sold as single leaves planted in a small pot. These small pots rarely if ever grow into a plant and should be avoided.

Kerrii Splash

Kerrii Splash is an interesting variation on the heart shaped beauty. Typical of Kerrii this is a slow growing plant that has interesting splashes of silver all over the leaves of the plant.

Kerrii (variegated)

As above this is also known as the sweetheart plant or the Valentines Hoya however this is varigated with a white edge and green center to the leaf. Kerrii is a slow grower in my opinion, it is often sold as single leaves planted in a small pot. These small pots rarely if ever grow into a plant and should be avoided.

Kentiana (variegated)

From the Phillipines, this hoya is a rapid grower, its long slender leaves are slightly rolled to the center and have a creamy white mid section and a darker green boarder and sometimes a tint of red or pink.

Krinkle 8

This Hoya is extremely easy to grow. It looks very nice in a hanging basket outside in bright filtered light in frost free areas or indoors by a window. The leaves on this H. carnosa are more unusual, they have 8 "crinkles" or "dimples." The flowers are like all carnosas; pink with reddish center and smells like chocolate at night!

Lambii

This Hoya hails from Sabah, Borneo and gets its other nick name from its large leaves, which are clustered, often forming an upright basin that fills with debris and then fills with roots and then ants. In all likelihood the plant draws much of its sustinance from the break down of the debris and the waste products of the ants.

Limoniaca

This fast growing hoya has lighter green oval pointed leaves and makes a great hanging plant. Although not quick to flower the flowers are really something worth waiting for. They can have anything from pale yellow to more mustard yellow corollas, white coronas with yellow tips and red centers.

Macrophylla 'Pot of Gold'

This hoya develops big, colorful, attractive, variegated leaves. The variegation is on the center of the leaves, unlike the regular variegated one which is on the edges.

Manipurensis

Mathilde

This is a cross between H. carnosa and H. serpens that is a very nice plant. A fairly compact plant with small oval leaves and a small splash of silver. It is great in a hanging basket and easy to train into shape as the vines are not thick or brittle.

MinniBelle

Hoya 'Minibelle' is a cross between Hoya shepherdii and Hoya carnosa. It is named after the hybridizer's wife Minibelle Hummel. There is also a sister seedling to 'Minibelle' and it's called 'Shepherdell'. The long narrow leaves have inherited both parents charm, i e the length of shepherdii and the flecks from carnosa. The leaves are 10-12 cm long and about 2 cm wide. If this hoya is grown a little darker the leaves can get to be over 20 cm long, dark green and the flecks are more prominent.

Multiflora

Nummularioides

Obscura

Hoya obscura is a fast-growing hoya from the Philippines. Characterized by medium-sized veined leaves that range from deep green when grown in shade, to a deep reddish color when grown in sunlight.

Optimistic

Panache (rubra)

Sold to me as Panache, and with little information on the internet this plant could be a member of the carsona family and I assume it is a red flowering variety with the rubra extension on the end. It is yet to flower so I guess its a wait and see on this varigated leafed variety.

Polyneura

This hoya comes from Himalaya and India and it was described in 1883. A hoya most suitable for growing hanging, although the rather stiff branches can grow quite long before they bend down. The leaves are 6-8 cm long, 2.5-4 cm wide, light green with darker green prominent veins. It's often called "fishtail hoya" because of the pattern the veins make. It's supposed to grow fast and since the flowers mostly develop at the tips of the branches, many cuttings in the same pot promotes more chances of flowers.

Pottsii Caust

Dark green, fleshy leaves - allegedly blooms greenish blue flowers with white centers. Leaves are a long oval shape with a point similar in size to carnosa but much thinner in substance.

Pubicalyx 'Black Dragon'

An easy silver splotched leaf cultivar. Water well and allow to dry out thoroughly - a fast growing cultivar for me.

Retusa

Hoya retusa is a small leafed Hoya from India, that except for the flower, looks nothing like the rest of the plants in the genus. It is a cool grower and perfers a moister environment than some other hoya.

Rotundiflora

An easy grower for me. Rotundiflora has an interesting almost square leaf different than a lot of others on the market.

Serpens

Shepherdii

They call this Hoya the "String Bean Hoya." It is very fragrant and is from India. Keep it above 50, but it can take temperatures in the high 40's for short periods of time.

Siariae Red

Thomsonii 'Pink'

The plant is named after its co-discoverer T. Thomson with the other plant hunter named J. D. Hooker. The leaves are furry and vary widely in size. A very pretty, but slow growing Hoya.
