Description

Hoya Incrassata, commonly known as the Waxvine or Common waxflower is a popular plant grown for its attractive glossy foliage, and sweetly scented wax-like yellow flowers with cerise inner markings under the white corona. The leaves on this hoya vary a lot in size. Anywhere between 9-16 cm long and 4-6 cm wide. These leaves are all green, have no flecks and they are somewhat "folded" along the center vein. Leaves are quite shiny when young, but get harder and not so shiny (and I don't mean dust!) as they get older. Some leaves get thicker than others and these are also quite lighter in colour

The flowers on this hoya are quite small, only about 5 mm and reflexed. The corolla lobes are yellow and have brownish tips and the corona is white. These flowers have a very strong fragrance with a hint of citrus. In one umbel there can be anywhere from 30 up to 80 flowers. They last about 3-4 days.

Environment

Easy to grow & don't require much attention. Hoya do best in filtered light or with lots of artificial light in indoors.

Hoya plants don't ask for much, beyond the well-draining soil and the warm humid conditions ((similar to bromeliads and orchids)

They are epyphite, can be grown in orchid medium or light potting mix with lots of bark conditioner. Hoya like the security of a snug pot, and plants that are a bit root bound will flower more prolifically than those that are swimming around in a giant pot.

This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and/or birds .

Landscape Use

It makes a nice hanging basket, but also does really well as a mounted plant

Hoyas are one of the easiest vines to take care of. Their needs are little and in the case of Hoya - less is more!

Hoyas like medium to bright indirect light. It detests direct sunlight and dark corners!

Hoya plants are very sensitive to over watering. To avoid this always keep a Hoya in a pot with a drainage hole. Use well drained soil or coco peat and perlite mix to make sure the excess water gets drained out. Water the Hoya only when the soil is completely dry. If it is moist you can let it be for a couple of days before checking on it again. It is better to under water than over water your Hoya plant!

Don't cut the long tendrils of your Hoya as the leaves and flowers develop from these!
