Hoya coronaria Red - Wax Flower

Red is super hard to come by, but we were lucky enough to have her join our potting sheds. She has glossy green leaves that trail and climbs like a true hoya, but the real show stopper is, of course, the star-shaped "Red" waxy flower.

Description

This wax plant is a favourite amongst collectors and plant parent newbies. She has succulent like green leaves that sit on woody stems that will trail and climb in any direction you desire. If she likes how you're treating her she will show off with big beautiful, star-shaped red flowers that smell like sweet musk. 

The Hoya is originally from Eastern Asia where it grows in rainforests and thrives in a humid, semi-shaded spot either as an epiphytic or a twining climber. She's such a queen, a hanging plant that you can place anywhere with bright indoor light or full sun (she will actually flower better with higher levels of the sun).

Red is low maintenance, pet friendly, trailing plant and we guarantee you won't regret adding her to your collection.

  • Quick Facts
  • What to use me for: I think I look pretty cool chillin' out in the bathroom or a kitchen in a hanging basket 

    I grow to: 60cm-1m high, 30cm wide

    Where to place me: I love a bright light indoors or dappled sunlight under a tree if I am going outside. 

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently.

  • Size
  • I am currently 10-15cm tall in a 50mm nursery tube 

  • Growing
  • Drink preferences:  I am very forgiving and don't need too much water because I can store water in my leaves. A good rule of thumb is to give me a drink when my leaves start to pucker ever so slightly. 

    Potting needs: I really like a good quality potting mix and will do well in a 170mm pot. 

    Tips and tricks: I don't like being repotted often and will flower better if I am in a tight pot. If you wanted to keep me nice and neat you can give me a prune just be sure not to cut off the dead flower heads because new flowers will continue to grow from the same spot.  I look good cascading down a shelf or if you want me to stand upright give me a bit of support using a fancy plant stake. Keep an eye out for Mealybugs they do love me see how to get rid of me

  • Delivery
  • Our plants are beautifully grown and have well-developed roots. They are hardened, can be planted directly into the planters and are excellent performing Indoor plants - it’s our plant promise guarantee!
