This Hoya is so cool. We love the thick somewhat ruffle edged leaves that come in with a reddish hue and yummy. The leaves are lightly speckled. In our care, we have found that they like a lot of bright direct light, humidity, and to be kept somewhat moist. These have been growing by a Southern opaque window. They grow quite fast for a hoya.
This plant has been growing roots in clay pebbles and about 75% humidity with lots of bright indirect light. New root growth is small. This plant will be shipped bare root in sphagnum moss. Some clay pebbles may be stuck to the plant's small root system. We left it so as not to disturb the root growth. The plants pictured, are the ones for sale. Plant has just been rooted. Do not expect a mature root system. Once plant rooted, it was repotted in a nice soil mix for Hoya. Leave the Hoya in the 3" pot for at least a month before replanting as new roots are delicate and should not be disturbed. Take care not to over water.
We package and ship our plants with the utmost care. However, we cannot be responsible for damage during shipping. Not every plant will look exactly like the picture, as all plants are unique, but we strive to keep them consistent.
Orders placed Sunday through Tuesday will be shipped the next day (excluding holidays). Orders placed on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday will be shipped out the following Monday (excluding holidays). This is in best interest of the plants.
Plants shipped in winter usually do great. One of the most important keys to the success of the plant's arrival is that the plant is is brought in immediately upon delivery. If on the off chance, you do receive a plant that is in poor condition, please email us pictures that SAME DAY your plant is received and we will replace, credit, or refund you the purchase price of the plant.
Replacements, credits and refunds are only available during the winter months( Nov- Feb) if priority mail and a warmer are purchased.
