Hoya Rubra Tri-Colour 4"

Botanical name: Rubra Tri-Colour Hoya

Common name: Crimson Prince, Wax plant, Porcelain Flower Plant, Carnosa Tri-Colour

 

OWNER STATUS

Just give me the light and watch me climb (or trail). (Novice) 

 

DESCRIPTION

Foliage:

Thick, wavy leaves, this Hoya boasts tri-colour leaves with a creamy pinkish tone with yellow highlights on bright green leaves. Subtly scented clusters of star shaped pale pink to dark pink flowers that appear wax like can happen, but may take up to 3 years to flower. Resist cutting the long tendrils, as these will help your hoya climb. Who needs aromatherapy when you’ve got a fragrant Hoya?

Size:

As they are a vine plant, the vines can grow to 12 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. 

 

CARE

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.
