Hoya pottsii - Wax Vine PlantRegular price $65.00
Hoya Pottsii can appear as a humble green, vining epiphyte but give it plenty of bright light and it turns a magnificent dark red/purple with distinct green venation. Creamy white/yellow flowers are a beautiful contrast to its dark foliage.
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.
