About Wax Plant

History

The Wax plant is a species of the Hoya genus, discovered by the Scottish scientist Robert Brown in 1810, who named the genus in honour of his friend, botanist Tom Hoy. Native to Australia and eastern Asia, the wax plant has been cultivated as an indoor plant for over 200 years.

Cultivation

In the wild Hoya carnosa often grow as epiphytes, relying upon trees, moss poles or rocks for structural support. Their leaves are slightly succulent and they bloom clusters of small, typically pink, flowers in late summer.

Care

Wax plants like bright light but out of the harsh, direct sun and only requires watering when their soil has fully dried out. As a fast-growing plant, the Hoya carnosa is a heavy feeder and should be fed twice per month, with a liquid fertiliser during spring and summer. They can be a little bit sensitive to extreme temperatures so should be kept away from fans of draughty windows.

Such a fab plant! Arrived in perfect condition in a small hanging pot. Once unravelled I couldn’t stop admiring the plant. It’s healthy, lush and loooooooong! Beautiful find. And carefully delivered.
