Porcelain/Wax Flower Plant
(aka Hoya carnosa 'Tricolor')
I am native to tropical Asia
I trail my pretty tri-coloured leaves, and grow hyper-real waxy flowers.
I can grow to 6M spread.
Keep me in extremely bright, indirect light but not directly in the sun.
Flowers are my thing, but I can be temperamental until established. I flower best in humid conditions, but please do not mist me when my flowers are budding or in bloom.
I do not respond well to hard pruning.
I can live a long time in the right conditions.
I like a free draining soil otherwise I can get root rot. Fertilise me with a weak solution to encourage flowering.
I go semi-dormant from October to February so only need occasional watering in that period. Don't let my soil get dust dry though.
