Hoya obovata - Wax Vine PlantRegular price $65.00
Large, round green leaves, speckled with white or pink are the appeal of this hoya. Naturally growing in tree trunks and vining their way towards the light, Hoya obovata is epiphytic and prefers fast draining, airy potting mix. Given enough light this hoya produces white/pale pink flowers from Spring to Autumn.
Please note these plants are very large and will be sent semi-bare root. They are hardy and epiphytic and are very tolerant of this.
