Hoya gracilis - wax plant
Hoyas are also known as wax plants due to their thick almost carved out of wax looking leaves. Hoya gracilis with its speckled green leaves and fragrant pink-red flowers is a beautiful member of the hoyas family, and will be a great addition to your plant collection!
It comes in a 12 cm pot and is approx 20 cm high. You can let it hang or train it to go up the trellis!
Light: Low-Medium. This hoya will only bloom if you give her lots of bright, but indirect light (think 200-300 FC min), but it will feel good in a less bright spot too!
Min light - 100 FC, Good Growth - 200 FC
Water: Low. As they're actually succulents, water rarely (until the soil fully dries out), but plenty!
Pets: Non-toxic to cats or dogs. If they eat too much of the leaves, they'll still throw up (duh!), but as the leaves are quite hardy, hoyas are unlikely to be the target of your furry friends.
