Botanical name: Hoya Carnosa Compacta
Common name: Hindu Rope Plant, Krinkle Kurl, Indian Rope Plant
Just give me the light and watch me climb (or trail). (Novice)
This is one of the more unique and harder to find Hoya varieties. The leaves are thick and waxy like most Hoya plants, but what sets this Hoya apart are the twisted, curly, cupped leaves of the Krinkle Kurl. The tightly packed curled leaves seemingly resemble a...rope.
As they are a vine plant, the vines can grow to 6 feet or possibly longer. Maintain the size that works in your space. Hanging pots work well to allow them to dangle free form style, or place bamboo stakes in the pot and train (tie) the vines to the stake for a more upright form.
Light: Bright, but not direct sun. While this Hoya can tolerate low to medium light, you may see a lack of colour, slower growth and not as full.
Water: Less is more. This Hoya is not a fan of over watering. Water when the top half of the soil is dry. Careful not to overwater in the winter months.
Soil: Since they are particularly sensitive to too much water, a soil with excellent drainage is key.
A succulent or cacti mix is ideal. And for everything good in the world, please make sure your pot has drainage.
