What's a Hoya?

Botanical Classification: Apocynaceae Hoya


One of the easiest indoor houseplants to care for, Hoya plants are slow-growing vining plants native to tropical and subtropical Asia. They are also known as Wax plants due to their thick and shiny foliage.  

As a Hoya plant, it produces clusters of sweet-smelling star-shaped flowers. Hoyas ares non-toxic to humans and pets. They love bright indirect light and make a great, care-free houseplant.

Hoyas can go quite a while between waterings. You’ll know they need a drink when the leaves feel thin and may start to wrinkle slightly.
